Andrew Sadek Autopsy Results Released

The North Dakota State College of Science (NDSCS) Campus Police Department has today received the final autopsy report regarding the death of Andrew Sadek. Medical Examiner Mark A. Koponen, M.D., has ruled the cause of death to be a gunshot wound to the head. The manner of death has been ruled as undetermined. The toxicology drug screen was negative.  

Andrew Sadek, a 20-year-old student at NDSCS, was last seen leaving Nordgaard Hall on the Wahpeton campus around 2 a.m. on Thursday, May 1, 2014. He was reported missing the following day. The NDSCS Campus Police Department, in close cooperation with area law enforcement agencies and fire departments, conducted an extensive ground, air and water search for Sadek in the weeks that followed. On June 27, 2014, Sadek’s body was recovered from the Red River near Breckenridge, Minn.

Because the manner of death has been ruled as undetermined, the Sadek case will continue to be handled as an open investigation, and an ongoing search for the weapon continues. Based upon the facts of this case, Campus Police believe there is no threat to the campus community or the public.
