More on Joseph Dado’s Death
Students held a vigil last night in memory of Joseph Dado, the freshman whose body was found earlier in the evening between Hosler and Steidle buildings. Dado left the Fiji fraternity house around 3 a.m. Sunday and was never heard from again. After police searched with helicopters and dogs, he was found around 6:00 last evening by a maintenance worker. Police say it most likely was an accidental fall, though there will be an autopsy and toxicology tests today.
You can read Daily Collegian stories about the incident here, here, and here. Dado’s hometown paper, the Tribune-Review in Pittsburgh, has a story here. The Centre Daily Times‘ story is here (though, annoyingly, you now have to register to read their online stories—it’s free, but it takes a few minutes to sign up).
And the students at the blog onwardstate.com have some pictorial coverage of the events of last evening, as well as an aerial photo showing the buildings involved.
It’s tough to stop thinking about Joe’s parents and his sisters, two of whom are currently Penn State students. Their loss is just hard to fathom.
