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.
