It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the death of one of our students, Fitzhugh Gordon Samuel, who died sometime Tuesday evening or early this morning in his residence at Lancer Park. Fitz was a senior theatre major from Falls Church, Va.
At this time, the cause of death is unclear, but there is no evidence of foul play. The Longwood University Police Department is handling the investigation.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to Fitz’s family and friends. I know we all mourn with them the loss of such a promising young man and vital member of the Longwood community.
