CARBONDALE (AP) — Police in Carbondale are investigating the death of a Southern Illinois University student after an apparent accidental fall.

Authorities say 31-year-old Nathan Morrow of Carbondale was injured Oct. 23, although details of the fall haven't been made public. Morrow died last week at a St. Louis hospital.

Police say it appears Morrow's death was accidental, but they're asking anyone with information to call them.

Morrow was an SIU senior who'd been studying art.

Services are set for 3 p.m. Saturday at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Carbondale.
