Death of American student in Mexico ruled a homicide

The death of an American college student whose body was discovered at a Mexican train station last month has been ruled a homicide.

Andrew Dorogi, a Cleveland native and senior at Amherst College, had been on spring break in Mexico City when authorities found him dead at Camarones Metro train station on the city’s Line 7, the the Mexico City Attorney General’s Office told ABC News.

An auxiliary officer of the Secretary Public Security was called to the station just before 11 p.m. on March 15 to investigate reports of a person in an unauthorized area. When he arrived on the scene, the officer spotted a man lying on the tracks and ordered the station’s power be cut.

Red Cross staff arrived to treat the person but he was later pronounced dead on the scene.

The body was identified as 21-year-old Dorogi, a football player and economics major at Amherst.

His cause of death has been ruled a “culpable suicide,” according to ABC.

It’s unclear whether any suspects have been identified or if a person is in custody.
