Student’s death from parking garage fall likely accidental
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Lincoln police say the death of a 22-year-old University of Nebraska-Lincoln student appears to be accidental.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that police found the body of Dane LeClair in downtown Lincoln around 9:30 a.m. Sunday.
Officer Angela Sands says LeClair, of Pittsford, New York, died after falling from the fourth floor of a parking garage. She says that based on video surveillance footage, LeClair fell at around 3:40 a.m. and his death appeared to be accidental. She says an autopsy will determine whether alcohol was involved.
LeClair was a master of business administration student and a Husker volleyball student manager. In a statement, Nebraska volleyball coach John Cook says LeClair “made a lasting positive impact on all of us with his big smile and friendly personality.”
