Authorities say the death of a 25-year-old University of Michigan medical student is being investigated as suspicious by police in Ann Arbor.

Police responded around midday Wednesday to the student's off-campus residence. Cause of death hasn't been determined.

Police Lt. Paul Curtis tells the Detroit Free Press that the man's body was found when an associate was sent to check on him after he didn't show up for an assignment.

The student's name wasn't immediately released. reports investigators cordoned off the building where the body was found.
