Binghamton University: Freshman dies 'accidentally' in off-campus incident

Conor Donnelly, a BU freshman from Pearl River, NY, in Rockland County, "died accidentally," according to the statement from the school.

"It is always difficult to lose someone," Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger said in the statement, "but it is especially difficult to lose a young member of our campus community so suddenly."

A sergeant with the Binghamton Police Department confirmed to WBNG that they were investigating an incident on Front Street in Binghamton, but would not release further details of the accident.
