Dead Body Found in Bathroom at Miami Dade College's Kendall Campus UPDATED
A Miami Dade College employee made a grisly discovery this morning, stumbling upon a dead body in a bathroom at the university's Kendall campus.
The employee found the unidentified man's corpse between 6 and 7 a.m. A message was quickly sent out to university faculty, staff, and students, but police say they believe the person died of natural causes.
"Somebody doing exercise at campus went into the bathroom and collapsed," said MDC spokesperson Juan Mendieta, who was at the scene this morning. He added that the dead person --
who was wearing athletic clothes -- does not appear to have been either a student or university employee.
The body was found in the bathroom of Building M, which is near several student parking lots as well as the university's track and athletic fields.
Mendieta added that the university is a popular workout spot for people unaffiliated with the school.
"It's kind of a meeting place for people who exercise seriously," he said.
