The unconscious teen was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The body of a University of Iowa student has been found on the campus in Iowa City, and officials say they believe his death was weather-related. Michael said doctors have told him that alcohol was not found in his son's system at the time of his death.

Belz's dad told TV9 he last spoke to Gerald Sunday night.
