UK police say they’ve identified the man, but will be waiting for the coroner to release his name. UK police say he was subletting an apartment from a graduate at UK. They do not believe the man was otherwise affiliated with the university. 

The woman who called about the body told investigators that initially, she had yelled at the man and he did not respond. The coroner says there were no signs of foul play, and the investigation is ongoing.
