Twenty-four-year-old Michael Paytas, of Holmes, was found unresponsive in the university’s library on Nov. 30. The fourth-year marketing major was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

On Saturday, city and campus police responding to a 911 call found 20-year-old James Orlando, of Reading dead in his off-campus apartment.

The medical examiner’s office said Monday it won’t reveal what drug was found the men’s system. They also didn’t say if there’s any connection between the deaths.

Temple says it’s grieving the deaths of the students.
