A 67-year-old UNT custodian and graduate student was found unconscious Thursday night in a parking lot on campus. The person was taken to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and later pronounced dead.

A passerby found the student in Lot 26, a parking lot near Bain Hall, and notified police around 10 p.m. UNT spokesperson Julie Payne said they appeared to have died from natural causes.

“We are looking at this as a tragic situation,” Payne said.

UNT police officer Kevin Crawford said this is an open investigation.
