STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- The Centre County coroner's office announced Tuesday the toxicology results from a Penn State University student who fell to his death in November.
Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers said Conor MacMannis, 20, had marijuana and synthetic LSD in his system when he fell to his death from a ninth-floor balcony of Penn Towers in State College the morning of Nov. 16.
Sayers said MacMannis had a minimal amount of alcohol in his blood system.
Following MacMannis' death, State College police issued a notice about possible psychedelic and synthetic drugs that were being found in the area. Officers warned students and residents that using these drugs could result in overdose or death.
MacMannis' death was just one of several incidents where students have fallen or jumped from windows or balconies in State College over the past year.
