The ASU student who died early Saturday morning after falling from a balcony on the 20th floor of the West Sixth apartment complex has been identified as 24-year-old Maxwell Chamberlain, Tempe police said on Thursday.
Tempe police spokesperson Lily Duran released his name in an email to The State Press on Thursday.
She said the department believed the incident was "a very unfortunate accidental fall where impairment may have been a factor."
The Maricopa County Medical Examiner confirmed the office was handling a decedent with the same name who died on Sept. 30, but said they are still determining the exact cause of death.
An ASU spokesman confirmed on Saturday that Chamberlain was an ASU student.
Tempe police spokeswoman Officer Kelly Angel said the call came in at 3:09 a.m. Saturday, and that there were multiple callers for the incident. She said the student was already deceased when officers arrived at the Tempe high-rise west of Mill Avenue.
West Sixth resident and biology senior Erik Southard said he watched from his apartment on the 21st floor as building security officers and police quickly closed down the scene.
"I think security got there pretty quickly and made sure that no one came and looked," he said
He said his first reaction afterward was to call his mother.
"I called my mom, actually, just to like, tell her I love her," he said. "Makes you realize how quickly that ... can go sour."
Earlier that night, the underage student had attended a "binge-drinking" party hosted by a fraternity that was banned from campus, Tempe police said at the time.
