Dixon told the paper that police did not suspect foul play but were investigating due to Few's age and the possibility that alcohol was a factor in the fall.


The News reported that Few was studying construction science and management at Clemson and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity.

The Pickens County Coroner's Office said that an autopsy has been scheduled for Monday.
