A man was found dead in a tent at a vacant Occupy Denton campsite on the UNT campus at about 5 p.m. Saturday.

According to the Tarrant County medical examiner, 23-year old Occupy Denton member Darwin Cox died at 4:30 p.m. UNT spokesman Buddy Price said the cause of death is unknown and no one was at the camp when police arrived on the scene.

Members of Occupy Denton said Cox was not a student at UNT.

Occupy Denton members held an emergency meeting inside the General Academic Building at 7 p.m.

The body was taken from the tent by a Denton County coroner around 8:30 p.m., and the site was blocked off with police tape for most of Saturday evening.

“This is a friend of ours who had found a family here,” said Garrett Graham, an organizer with Occupy Denton. “We’re dealing with it like a family.”
