Police investigating death of East Lansing man after on-campus fall






MSU police are investigating a death after an incident at the Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education on Tuesday.

MSU police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said 51-year-old Lansing resident David Eugene Strouse was pronounced dead at Lansing’s Sparrow Hospital on Tuesday, after MSU police and the East Lansing Fire Department responded to a call just after 2 p.m. for a man that had fallen off a ladder and was not breathing.

On Tuesday, MSU police Sgt. Shaun Mills told The State News the individual likely was at the Pavilion preparing for an RV show taking place this week. He said a heart-attack could have been involved because CPR was administered. McGlothian-Taylor could not confirm whether or not a heart attack was related.

McGlothian-Taylor said there did not appear to be signs of foul play, and an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
