FIRST ON 3: Police report sheds some light on UNCW student's death

READ MORE: FIRST ON 3: Police report sheds some light on UNCW student's death

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- There's still no word on what killed a UNCW student last week, but we are learning more about what happened.

Bryce Scott was found dead at his apartment in the Reserves at Forest Hills Friday morning. Today, we got a copy of the police report that shines a little light on the situation.

The report says an apartment complex worker found Scott around 9 a.m. Friday. That's two days after investigators say the 18-year-old was last heard from.

The report lists the incident as "sudden death." It then lists "narcotics/drugs" under weapons or tools. Under the drug or alcohol use section, though, "No" is checked.

A police department spokeswoman says investigators have to run a toxicology report to determine exactly how Scott died. She says she does not believe that any illegal drugs were found at the apartment, and investigators do not suspect foul play.

We tried to talk to the worker who found Scott. The management office at the apartment complex said no one there would comment on the situation.
