A body was found Monday afternoon on the roof of a residential housing complex on the University of Kentucky campus.
Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn said the cause of the young man's death was not known, but foul play was not suspected.
UK police Chief Joe Monroe said the man, whose name was not released, was from Central Kentucky but was not a UK student or affiliated with UK in any way. Monroe said the man had subleased an apartment in the complex from a student.
The body was noticed by a passerby just after 3 p.m. on a slate roof above a covered walkway that surrounds a courtyard at 625 South Limestone.
Never miss a local story.
The Lexington Fire Department initially responded, along with UK police.
The building houses UK graduate student apartments and is on the site of what once was Lexington Theological Seminary.
One of the second-story windows of the building was open, with clothing in a pile on the roof a short distance from the body.
Monroe said UK police were investigating, but there was no initial indication of illegal activity.
