Officers responded to the Sigma Phi fraternity house at 907 Lincoln Ave. after receiving a call from fraternity members who discovered the body in the furnace room at about 9:30 p.m., according to reports.
Fraternity members identified him as Anthony Langas. Police said he was not a U-M student. He had lived in the house for about two years and had just moved into a different room, reports said. Eastern Michigan University officials said that he was a student last year but was not currently enrolled in any courses.
Investigators are treating the incident as a suspicious death and are not ruling out foul play. No drug paraphernalia or alcohol was found near the body and there were no indications of a party in the house. An autopsy is scheduled for later today.
"There were no obvious, outward signs of trauma and the cause is still under investigation," said Sgt. Richard Kinsey.
Kinsey said the fraternity brothers found the body during a room-to-room search of the house at the urging of the man's family, who said they had not heard from their son in two or three days.
Fraternity members told police they had not seen the man since 2 a.m. Wednesday, according to reports.
"Anthony was a great friend, and he's going to be sorely missed," said Joshua Dziurlikowski, fraternity president.
