A 19-year-old male student of Aichi Gakusen University was found dead on Thursday morning at a dormitory after he was drinking heavily with friends at a party on Wednesday night. According to police, Shohei Hayashi was found dead on his futon mat by a friend around 9:40 a.m. He had vomited before his death, police said.
Police said Hayashi and his friends, who belong to a basketball club, held a farewell party for senior students from 7 p.m. on Wednesday to 3 a.m. on Thursday. Other students at the party told police that they let Hayashi sleep because he was very drunk.
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the cause of death. Police said charges may be filed because minors seem to have been drinking illegally.© Japan Today
