Police: Washington State safety Bryce Beekman found dead


Jenkins said there were no signs of foul play and that the Whitman County coroner will determine the cause of death for 22-year-old Bryce Beekman, the senior defensive back who was found Tuesday afternoon.


The Associated Press made several attempts to contact the coroner’s office for comment early Wednesday but no one answered the phone.


“We are in shock with the news of Bryce’s passing,” Washington State athletic director Pat Chun said in a statement.


First-year Washington State coach Nick Rolovich informed the team of Beekman’s passing on Tuesday night.


Washington State’s program is barely two years removed from the suicide of quarterback Tyler Hilinski in January 2018.


In a conference call with reporters Tuesday prior to learning of Beekman’s death, Rolovich said the majority of players had stayed in their hometowns following spring break.
