San Jose State student’s death ruled suicide
February 12, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

A coroner has ruled that a San Jose State University student who was found dead in his dorm room took his own life.

University spokeswoman Pat Lopes Harris said that the death of 18-year-old Brenden Tiggs represents the first on-campus suicide at the school in at least a decade.

Campus police still are looking into the circumstances of the freshman’s death, which was discovered Sunday.

Tiggs’ father, Gary Tiggs, welcomed the investigation, saying that his son had excellent grades, a positive outlook and no reason to end his life.

Several hundred people attended a candlelight vigil in Tiggs’ memory outside his dorm on Monday.
