BLOOMINGTON -- Preliminary autopsy results show an ISU student may have died of exposure. 19-year old Yusuf Ahmad was found about three miles from campus after wandering away from the Chateau Hotel on Jumer Drive.

Authorities say there were no external injuries which led to his death, but he was not dressed appropriately for the weather at the time he ventured outside.

Ahmad was living in Normal while attending the university, but is originally from Oak Lawn. An official autopsy report will be released when forensic toxicology tests have been completed.
