He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said there is no evidence of criminal activity and they are not likely to issue more information than that - the VCU generally does not comment on deaths without an element of foul play, and the Thread typically only covers situations with a public interest or in response to inquiries from readers.

Monnish Park is at the highly trafficked corner of 15th Street and Hackberry Lane next to Central High School and this report comes in answer to such questions.
