LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say drugs and alcohol may have played a role in the death of an 18-year-old man at a UCLA fraternity house.

Glen Parrish Jr. of Manhattan Beach, Calif., was found dead Saturday at the Theta Chi house off campus.

Los Angeles County coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey says the death was reported as a possible accident involving prescription drugs and alcohol. He says an autopsy is planned for Monday to determine the cause of death.

University of California, Los Angeles, spokesman Phil Hampton says Parrish wasn’t a UCLA student. He says the university will cooperate with a Los Angeles police investigation.

The UCLA Daily Bruin says an Interfraternity Council official identified Parrish as an Arizona State University student.

Messages seeking comment from the fraternity were not immediately returned Monday.

    I really wish they would stop calling overdoses an accident. A person does not accidentally take to many pills. What did they do trip, fall and the pills jumped into their mouth? When you mix drugs with alcohol it is not an accident.

    I feel for the parents loss.

    How heart breaking, so sad. This is sad to say the least. I have a son in college and I worry . Some may think I am nieve about college but he doesn’t party. He chose to make college a time to be preparing himself for life. He wants to make ” THE BIG BUCKS!” he says.
    Now this person will never have the chance for living up to their potiental.
    My prayers go out to the family..
