Chestnut Hill College student found dead on campus

CHESTNUT HILL - April 16, 2014

Police say a maintenance worker found the lifeless body of 22-year-old Amerman around 8:00 this morning. He was lying on a couch in the rotunda of St. Joseph Hall.

Medics raced to the scene but were unable to revive him.

The College says Amerman was a senior business major. He's from Mt. Joy, Pennsylvania, located outside Reading, and lived off campus.

The College released a short statement saying, "The events of today have left our campus community shocked and full of sadness for Bradley David Amerman and his family."

It's a sentiment echoed by his classmates who say a pall has been cast over a day usually filled with fun - the last day of classes before spring break.

Philadelphia police are investigating. They're waiting for autopsy results to determine what led to this untimely death of a promising young business major on the verge of graduating.

However, they do say Amerman had prescription drugs in his possession.
