DENTON, Texas, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- A man's body was found Saturday in an Occupy movement camp on the University of North Texas campus, a school spokesman said.

The man's identity had not been released, school spokesman Buddy Price told The Dallas Morning News. Authorities think the man was a member of the encampment, Price said.

Campus police learned of the death about 5 p.m. No one else was at the eight-tent Occupy Denton encampment when police arrived, Price said.

Dallas' WFAA-TV reported police would not say whether the man was a UNT student. It said the campus newspaper reported the man was 23 years old. The station said authorities had found no signs of foul play.
