Death At Texas Occupy Camp

Yet another death darkens the already compromised reputation of the Occupy riots.

A  man found dead in a tent at the “Occupy Denton” protest campsite on the grounds of the University of North Texas (UNT).

Police on Sunday identified Darwin Cox, 23,  as the man found dead in a  tent of the Occupy camp at the University of North Texas.

University and city police found his body at the eight-tent encampment after someone contacted authorities between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Saturday, UNT spokesman Buddy Price told KNTU Radio.

“Occupy  Denton” quickly released  a statement  blaming the death on a drug overdose and adding that the deceased  was  “a fellow occupier, a kind and idealistic young man and a friend” whose “lifelong struggle with drug addiction”

Toxicology results have not yet been released and there is no official cause of death.
Protesters still plan to hold a vigil Monday evening for Cox to “mourn his loss and commemorate his life.”
