BURLINGTON, Vt. - There are new details surrounding the death of a Little Falls man who was found dead in Burlington, Vermont.
Autopsy results show 19-year-old Connor Gage died from hypothermia and of an acute alcohol intoxication.
Burlington police say Gage was not dressed properly for the sub-zero temperatures, when he got stuck in a parking lot while taking a shortcut. He died within minutes of the hypothermia setting in.
The University of Vermont is now suspending all fraternity activities. The suspension continues until its clear which fraternities may have been involved in Gage's death and to what extent. Once the police investigation is complete, the school will begin investigating issues of student conduct during the night of the incident.
Burlington police say Gage was walking from an off-campus party after midnight the morning of February 2.
Nearly 20 minutes later, police say they have a video of Gage, but detectives are not releasing that video. They are also not saying where they believe he was drinking before his death.
They say he attempted to scale a fence in the parking lot, possibly to take a shortcut.
Gage was found dead just before 11 a.m. Saturday morning. Police are investigating the moments leading up to Gage's death.
He graduated from Little Falls Central School last year. He was on the school's wrestling and football teams. At the University of Vermont, he majored in neuroscience.
Grief counselors are on hand at the Little Falls Central School.
