Police confirmed Thursday morning that a man found dead in June near Wolverine Tower, a University administrative building, passed away from natural causes. 

Diane Brown, spokesperson for the University’s Division of Public Safety and Security, said the man, identified as 22-year old Ypsilanti resident Lezester Sample, died from diabetic ketoacidosis. Diabetic ketoacidosis is a complication of type 1 diabetes. 

Sample was not affiliated with the University. 

In June, police had indicated that the cause of death was likely non-suspicious.
