There were no signs of foul play in the death of a UCLA employee on campus, university police said.

The body of Reynaldo Quitos, 47, an assistant at the school’s Southern Regional Library Facility, was found Tuesday afternoon at Boelter Hall, which is across campus from where he worked.

It appears Quitos either fell or jumped from the building, which houses engineering classrooms. Police are investigating it as an accident or suicide.


An autopsy was pending to determine the cause of death, coroner’s officials said.
