The UNC community knows but a few alarming facts: someone was found dead Tuesday at Odum Village, on-campus apartment near UNC Hospitals.

Campus police are yet to release the name or gender of the victim or the apartment number, but " have no reason to believe there is any ongoing threat to the campus community," according to information posted at Alert Carolina.

UNC Department of Public Safety Spokesman Randy Young wouldn't elaborate on how officers made that determination.

Asked if the incident was being investigated as a crime or an accidental death, he responded, "It's being investigated thoroughly."

Odum Village is home to 452 undergraduate and graduate students, according to UNC's housing Web site. They live in fully furnished, all inclusive one- or two-bedroom units located near Hibbard Drive and Mason Farm Road.

Young said he's not operating on a timeline and doesn't know when new information will be released.
