Police investigators planned to resume their probe Monday into the death of a University of Colorado student, found dead in the fraternity house where he'd just been accepted as a pledge.

18 year old Lynn Gordon Bailey, Jr. was found in a first-floor library of
the Chi Psi house on Friday after someone called 911.

His death occurred within a matter of hours after he called his mother to tell her the news of his acceptance, and of his obtaining a spot on the club lacrosse team.

Authorities found him with smudged ink marks on his face.

Police spokeswoman Julie Brooks said they had not determined whether alcohol was a factor in Bailey's death, and an autopsy and toxicology report were pending.

Friends and family say he did not have a drinking problem, although it
was possible he could have been celebrating his acceptance.

Police released the 911 call Monday, where frantic fraternity members
can be heard summoning emergency help.
