LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- An autopsy indicates that a 23-year-old University of Kansas student died last December from a fall after he had been drinking.

The autopsy released Tuesday said Gianfranco Villagomez-Saldana suffered skull fractures, bruising on the brain and broken ribs that suggested he fell on a hard surface.

Coroner Erik Mitchell says the death was an accident.

Villagomez-Saldana, from Lima, Peru, was found dead on Dec. 9, two days after he was seen leaving a party. The autopsy concluded he died Dec. 7.

His body was frozen when it was found but the coroner ruled he did not die from the cold. His blood alcohol level was 0.18 percent. No drugs were found in his system.
