ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Police in Mexico are investigating after a University of St. Thomas student was found dead in a hotel during a spring break trip to Puerto Vallarta.

The U.S. Consular Agency in Puerto Vallarta confirms to the St. Paul Pioneer Press that 20-year-old Josh Gunderson was found dead in a hotel room just after midnight on Tuesday.

Manuel Banuelos, a spokesman for the U.S. Consulate in Guadalajara, Mexico, says state and local police are investigating the death, which appears to be accidental.

Gunderson was a freshman at St. Thomas and a 2007 graduate of Stillwater Area High School.
