DENVER (AP) _ The father of a Colorado teen found dead in a fraternity house at the University of Kansas says alcohol is to blame.

Lawrence police identified the student found dead Sunday as 19-year-old Jason Christopher Wren of Littleton, Colo., a Sigma Alpha Epsilon pledge.

The Shawnee County coroner's office in Topeka confirms an autopsy was completed yesterday but declined to release the results. But Wren's father, Jay Wren, says police told him his son drank margaritas, whiskey and as many as a dozen beers before he died.

Jason Wren was a pre-business major and a midfielder on the men's lacrosse team at KU.

The University Daily Kansan reports a memorial service for Wren is planned Thursday evening on the front lawn of the SAE house.
