A student found dead at a Berkeley fraternity in November died of acute ethyl alcohol intoxication, an official with the Alameda County coroner’s bureau said today.
Vaibhev Loomba, 20, was found unresponsive in front of the Zeta Psi fraternity at 2728 Bancroft Way in Berkeley at 12:09 p.m. on Nov. 9. Loomba was a resident of Lafayette and attended the University of California at Davis, according to his Facebook profile.
He had more than 1,000 friends on the social networking site. Kathryn Lucida posted on Facebook after his death, “I can’t think of a more genuinely amazing person than Vaibhev.” “Even with people he just met, he was so sweet and caring,” she said.
