Coroner rules Penn State high-rise death a suicide
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - April 18, 2013 (WPVI) -- The Centre County coroner has officially ruled that the death of a 24-year-old former Penn State student who jumped from a high-rise apartment building in downtown State College was a suicide.
The Centre Daily Times reports Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers said Joshua Zornberg died as a result of head trauma suffered after falling six stories from the University Gateway building early Tuesday.
He's ruled the death a suicide after an autopsy was performed Wednesday, but toxicology tests likely won't be available for weeks.
Police say video showed Zornberg running down the hallway and "intentionally diving out the hallway window."
Zornberg's body was found on a roadway outside the building and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
