DeKALB – An autopsy is scheduled Tuesday for a Northern Illinois University student who died after apparently falling a Stevenson Tower window.
DeKalb County Coroner Dennis Miller said Oluwarotimi "Timi" Okedina, 19, died early Sunday morning.
Campus officials have released few details about what happened.
"A student had removed the window screen and apparently fell from the 11th floor at the Stevenson Towers residence hall on the NIU campus," according to a Campus Update posted on WNIJ from Eric Weldy, the university's vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. "The student was transported from the scene to Kishwaukee Hospital but passed away from injuries a short time later."
