The University freshman found deceased in his Baits II dorm room last month died from “heroin and cocaine abuse,” University Police reported.

Autopsy results released Monday by the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner deemed Thibault deSaintPhalle’s death “accidental” and the result of drug use.

Housing Security officers found the 18-year-old Theatre, Music & Dance student deceased in his bed at about 12 a.m. on Nov. 18. University Police said deSaintPhalle’s friends requested a well-being check after they had not seen him for the duration of the weekend.
