BLOOMFIELD HILLS (WWJ) – A mystery is unfolding at Cranbrook private school in Oakland County, where a 17-year-old student’s body was discovered on campus.

The student, who is from California, was found dead Wednesday. Other circumstances are not yet known, with an investigation just getting underway — but police say there is no foul play suspected.

An autopsy is expected later Thursday.
