A University of St. Thomas student was found dead Friday afternoon in his campus apartment.

Mark Langdon, 22, of Omaha, was found in his room in Flynn Hall after friends requested that public safety personnel check on him, said university spokesman Jim Winterer.

No foul play is suspected in Langdon's death, but the cause of death won't be known until after an autopsy, Winterer said.

Langdon was a junior majoring in political science.

In an announcement Friday night, the university asked the St. Thomas community to keep Langdon in their prayers.
