Sukraat Minhas, 22, Vermillion, was found by a roommate and the apartment manager. His death was caused by asphyxiation by hanging, said Vermillion Police Chief Bruce Plate.
Minhas, a native of Chanrigarh, India, had attended Huron University prior to enrolling at USD last August. He was a computer science major.
