An autopsy is being performed on a UC Davis student who was found dead in his off-campus apartment Tuesday.

Alexander Goldschneider, 21, was from Auburn. His parents called police to do a welfare check after they had not heard from him since Friday.

At this point, a UC Davis spokesperson says police are not investigating his death as a homicide.

The autopsy may explain his death, although the results of blood tests may take weeks, or possibly months, to complete.
