KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A 21-year-old student from the University of Tennessee was found dead at the bottom of a stairwell while studying abroad in Paris.
The university said 21-year-old Nathan Boals of Hixson, Tennessee, died yesterday during a trip that began last week with seven other U-T students and eleven students from Michigan State University.
There is no preliminary evidence of foul play. An autopsy was conducted today and the investigation is continuing. Boals was a senior in communication studies.
