Bruno Baskerville Walsh (1951-1972)
UCLA STUDENT PLUMMETS TO HIS DEATH
Police are investigating the death of UCLA student, Bruno Walsh, who fatally plummeted off the rooftop of his twelve-story dormitory early Tuesday morning. After questioning several eyewitnesses police suspect the twenty-one-year-old veterinary science undergraduate was under the influence of the mind-altering substance known as lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD).
The suspicion raises a red flag to parents concerned for the safety of their children. If it is confirmed that Walsh died under the influence of LSD, it will mark the fourth drug-related death on the UCLA campus this year.
"This is certainly making me think twice about sending my daughter here," said Alicia Tighe whose daughter, Callie, will be entering college next fall.
"Unfortunately, this seems to be a growing trend, especially among kids that are away from home for the first time. They get in with the wrong crowd and then all their friends are doing it... I just hope this boy's death sends a clear message that messing around with this kind of stuff is dangerous," said Police Chief Blake Cox.
A campus spokesperson released the following statement: "We would like to extend our condolences to Mr. Walsh's family and to assure them that will be conducting an extensive review into the circumstances surrounding their son's death." The boy's parents could not be reached for comment.
