Duquesne Students Want Answers on Athlete's Death

November 7, 2018

Students at Duquesne University are demanding that administrators share more information about the death of a football player who allegedly jumped out of a campus residence hall last month.

Students and teammates of 21-year-old Marquis Jaylen Brown told WTAE in Pittsburgh they do not believe that Brown jumped from a 16th-floor window to his death in early October. The TV station reported that students gathered at one of the university fields on Monday in a walkout over Brown's death.

An investigation into Brown's death is continuing, and medical examiners are awaiting toxicology test results, WTAE reported.

Brown's friends are also calling for grief counseling for students and have asked for a university forum to address Brown's death.
