PTC police probe death of student


Peachtree City police are investigating the death of a University of Georgia student who was found unresponsive early Sunday morning at a residence in the Bradford Estates subdivision.

Emergency crews sent to 301 Bradford Way at 7:20 a.m. determined that the student, identified as Samuel Kennedy, 24, of Vandiver Hall on the UGA campus in Athens had died.

The department is awaiting the autopsy report and also results from toxicology testing as part of the investigation, police said Tuesday morning.
Police officials would not comment on the believed cause of death in the case but promised to release more information at a later date once the investigation is further along.

Kennedy was a 2004 graduate of Starr’s Mill High School, according to school records.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that the home where Kennedy was discovered is owned by Thomas and Gayle Reddy. The home is actually owned by Stanley and Peggy Richards, who are Kennedy's mother and stepfather according to a published obituary for the student.
