LAWRENCE — An autopsy indicates a 23-year-old University of Kansas student died in December from a fall after he had been drinking.
The autopsy released Tuesday said Gianfranco Villagomez-Saldana suffered skull fractures, bruising on the brain and broken ribs that suggested he fell on a hard surface.
Coroner Erik Mitchell said the death was an accident.
Villagomez-Saldana, of Lima, Peru, was found dead Dec. 9, two days after he was seen leaving a party. The autopsy concluded he died Dec. 7.
His body was frozen when found, but the coroner ruled he did not die from the cold. His blood alcohol level was 0.18 percent, more than twice the legal limit for driving. No drugs were found in his system.
