    Student death update

    A 19-year-old CSU-Pueblo freshman was found dead Sunday, Jan. 29, in Culebra Hall at the university.

     Dylan Frank Wayne Solorio died as a result of asphyxiation by ligature, according to Pueblo County coroner James Kramer. Kramer said the death is consistent with a suicide, but there is still an on-going investigation, according to a Pueblo Chieftain article by Gayle Perez.

    “Pueblo County sheriff’s deputies responded to Culebra Hall at the CSU-Pueblo campus about 5:56 p.m. on a welfare check of a possible suicidal man, said Laurie Kilpatrick, sheriff’s spokeswoman. Kilpatrick said when deputies arrived, they found Solorio, who was unresponsive,” according to the article.

    Solorio graduated from Centennial High School in 2011, where he participated in cross country and wrestling.

    *The TODAY staff’s attempt to contact Zaletel was unsuccessful, and the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office would not release additional details to the TODAY, stating the case was still under investigation.
