Former Lehigh University lacrosse player Shane Donlan was found dead after an apparent fall from a Las Vegas Strip hotel, the Associated Press has reported.

The AP reported that the Clark County coroner’s office on Tuesday identified the dead man as Donlan, 23, who played at Lehigh from 2006-09. Donlan was originally from Wyckoff, N.J., and was residing in Hawthorne, N.J.
