Student dies after fall in stairwell, officials say

A Carnegie Mellon student died Thursday in a stairwell in Wean Hall, officials say.

According to an early article from KDKA, police believe that the student may have taken his own life, though homicide investigators are still investigating the scene.

The student, who the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette identified as Rohan Vakharia, 19, of Gainesville, Fla., was found at the bottom of a stairwell in Wean Hall. Vakharia was a sophomore in SCS.
