The mysterious death of an 18-year-old Lubbock student is plaguing the campus of West Texas A&M. The university is located in Canyon, about 100 miles north of Lubbock.
Brandon L. Johnson was found in his dorm room just before one o'clock Wednesday afternoon. University police searched the room and found nothing out of the ordinary. They say it appears Johnson died of natural causes. But, this will not be ruled the official cause of death until an autopsy is performed.
The Lubbock Medical Examiner is expected to release that information on Friday. In the meantime, the university is offering counseling to Johnson's family and friends.
