A USC student was found dead in an apartment near campus by his roommates, the LAPD says.
The discovery in the 1300 block of West 29th Street was reported about 9:30 Sunday night, LAPD Officer Rosario Herrera told the Weekly. Neon Tommy reported that the student might have returned home Saturday from a party before the discovery:
