NAVAL ACADEMY STUDENT FOUND DEAD AFTER FALL

A U.S. Naval Academy student found dead earlier this month fell more than 60 feet from his dormitory's fifth-floor ledge, academy officials said.

The body of Midshipman 2nd Class Jay Michael Dixon, 21, of Destrehan, La., was discovered April 9 outside the building that houses the school's 4,000 midshipmen. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Academy officials said they found no evidence of foul play.

Four midshipmen have fallen from Bancroft Hall since 1988. Two of them died.
