Second MSU Student Killed in as Many Months
Clinton County officials are hoping surveillance video and witnesses will help to tell them what led to the death of a Michigan State University student over the weekend–the second death involving a university student in as many months.
Police say 19 year old Dustyn Frolka of Owosso in Shiawassee County was discovered late Saturday night along an I-69 ramp in Bath Township, north of Lansing. He was having diffculty breathing and died before arriving at Sparrow Hospital.
Officials say the teen, who was described as “partially clothed” had signs of injury on his body, but not what police considered significant enough to have caused his death. They are, however, treating the death as a homicide.
Authorities say they’ve begun the process of trying to determine where Frolka was in the minutes and hours leading up to his death. They’re hoping surveillance video from businesses in the area where he was found shortly after 10 o’clock will reveal clues as to what happened to him and who is responsible.
Police are also asking anyone with information on Folka’s whereabouts around the time of his death to contact them. They’re hoping that information could also lead to a motive for the attack.
Despite surveillance video of a suspect in the death of another MSU student–20 year old Domique Nolff–an arrest has yet to be made. That case is still under investigation.
