ARMONK, N.Y. – Byram Hills High School graduate and University of Vermont junior James Love was found dead in his room at the university in Burlington, Vt., early Sunday morning.

The cause of death for Love, 20, has not yet been determined, but the initial investigation has indicated no signs of suspicious activity or foul play, university officials said.

Love, who was an Armonk resident and a former track star at Byram Hills High School, was a student in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences. He was also a member of university's Cross Country and Track and Field varsity athletic teams.

University officials said Sunday that Love’s roommates in Redstone Lofts called 911 around 2 a.m., Sunday, because they were unable to awaken him. He was pronounced dead shortly after, university officials said.

As of Tuesday night, the university and its police officials had no new information.

According to the university's Athletic Department’s Web site, Love competed in four events in the 800 meter and 1,500 meter run during the 2012 season. He placed fifth overall in the 1,500 meter event at the Middlebury Invitational, with a season best time of 4:29.75, according to the website.

The university will hold an informal community gathering Wednesday afternoon in remembrance of Love in the Billings first floor North Lounge, according to a news release from the university.
