Authorities plan to examine the body Monday of an 18-year-old man who was found dead in a bed at a UCLA fraternity house.

Police believe drugs and alcohol were involved in the death of Glen Parrish Jr. of Manhattan Beach, who was found dead at the Theta Chi house in the 600 block of Gayley avenue, the Daily Bruin reported.

L.A. County Coroner spokeswoman Lt. Cheryl MacWillie said Parrish was visiting the UCLA campus.

"There’s nothing that suggests a suicide," she said, declining to elaborate.

Parrish was a Arizona State University student, the Bruin reported.
