Last Wednesday, Hilltop Townhomes staff discovered the body of NAU student Joseph Michael Bock during routine unit inspections over NAU's spring break. NAU Police Department is still investigating the incident but NAU Police Chief Kelli Smith says that there is no imminent threat to the NAU campus or its faculty, staff and students.
Bock's roommate James Phillips described Bock as personable and loved by many.
Though the tarp has been removed from over the apartment, no one has been permitted to re-enter the apartment while the investigation continues.
NAU Police Department are asking that the community respect the family's privacy during this difficult time.
