KOKOMO, IN - The investigation into the death of an Indiana college student continues on Monday.
Police say Tanner Lane Barton, 19, a freshman football player at Marian University, was found dead in the basement of a friend's home in Kokomo early Sunday morning. Officers were called to the home in the 7900 block of West OONS just before 9:30 a.m.
Barton was a close friend of the family and had stayed overnight, according to police.
"Interviews and evidence at the scene indicate Barton had consumed alcohol while at the residence, however, the exact amount is unknown," Kokomo police Capt. Greg Hargrove said in a news release.
There were no apparent signs of injuries and an autopsy will be performed this week, according to police.
Some of Barton's former football teammates wore their Northwestern High School jerseys during a vigil Sunday evening outside his family's home, according to the Kokomo Tribune.
The university told our Scripps station in Indianapolis that Barton was a physical education major in the school of education. Grief counselors are at the university on Monday.
No other information has been released at this time.
