wsu-2016-rigby-brandonThe Winona State University community mourns the loss of Brandon Allen Rigby. Rigby, 19, was from McHenry, Ill. He enrolled at WSU in fall 2015 and was studying Biology: Environmental Science.

Initial assessments indicate the situation does not present a safety concern for others on campus.

In a campus message, Denise McDowell, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Life, asked the campus community to keep Brandon’s family and friends in their thoughts and prayers.

“Losing a member of our community is a very difficult thing, and I know Brandon will be missed by many. I encourage you to gently connect with those among us who may be struggling with this loss. May we find peace and the strength to endure as we remember Brandon’s life here at WSU.”

Counseling and support services are being made available to the campus community.
