DURANT, Okla. (KFOR) – Agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation are looking into the death of a man whose body was found on an Oklahoma college campus.

Officials say the body of a man was found inside a vehicle on the campus of Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

A campus employee discovered the vehicle in the 300 block of University, behind the Student Bible Center building, and called police.

When officers arrived, they requested help from the OSBI.

On Tuesday afternoon, the victim was identified as 57-year-old Arvell James Brown.

Officials say Brown has no connection to the university.
