Dead Body Found in Bathroom at Miami Dade College's Kendall Campus UPDATED

A Miami Dade College employee made a grisly discovery this morning, stumbling upon a dead body in a bathroom at the university's Kendall campus.

The employee found the unidentified man's corpse between 6 and 7 a.m. A message was quickly sent out to university faculty, staff, and students, but police say they believe the person died of natural causes.

UPDATE: According to a family member of the deceased, he was an English professor at MDC who was going for a morning jog when he had a heart attack. The family has asked that his name not be released until a police investigation concludes.


"Somebody doing exercise at campus went into the bathroom and collapsed," said MDC spokesperson Juan Mendieta, who was at the scene this morning. He added that the dead person -- who was wearing athletic clothes -- does not appear to have been either a student or university employee.

Update:
"He worked there for between 20 and 30 years," says a family member of the deceased. "Obviously something happened between [going for a run] and having a massive heart attack, but police are still identifying beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was no foul play."

The body was found in the bathroom of Building M, which is near several student parking lots as well as the university's track and athletic fields.

Mendieta added that the university is a popular workout spot for people unaffiliated with the school.

"It's kind of a meeting place for people who exercise seriously," he said.
