Han D. Nguyen G was found dead this morning in the parking lot of E19, apparently having jumped from the roof of the building. Nguyen, age 25, was a PhD student in marketing at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

The MIT police received a call around 11:05 a.m. from MIT Facilities about a medical emergency in the E19 parking lot, at the corner of Main St. and Ames St.

An ambulance arrived and medical personnel pronounced Nguyen dead at 11:09 a.m.

The medical examiner has ruled that Nguyen’s death was not a homicide.

MIT officials released Nguyen’s name at 9:23 p.m., after contacting his family.
