Police do not suspect foul play, but the investigation is ongoing, according to a press release from the department.
According to an email sent to the Lutheran Campus Ministries listserv from Blair Flent, president of the ministry, the deceased person was not a member of the ministry or the associated Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. The statement also said the person did not appear to be a UNC student.
Police said the person was a man but have not released any additional identifying information about him.
Witnesses at the scene said the body was discovered between a dumpster in the parking lot of the church and a fence separating the parking lot from Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority house. The Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority house is located at 307 E. Franklin St. and its back fence is adjacent to the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.
