At 9 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 1, the Marquette Police Department responded to the 1400 block of Lynn Street in Marquette to find an unconscious male, lying on the front porch of his home.

The male was identified as 22-year-old Kyle Dowling of Marquette, and was soon discovered to be deceased by those responding to the scene, according to a police press release.

Dowling was a former student of Northern Michigan University, after attending from Winter 2011 to Winter 2012, according to Communications and Marketing Director Cindy Paavola.

The cause of Dowling’s death is still unknown, and Marquette police have not yet uncovered evidence of foul play in the case, however an investigation is still underway.
