Authorities say a western New York college student found dead inside a fraternity house last spring died of a lethal drug combination.

The Geneseo Police Department tells local media that the Monroe County medical examiner determined 20-year-old Alex Davis died from a combination of cocaine and the painkiller fentanyl.

Davis was found in May in an upstairs bedroom of the Phi Sigma Xi frat house off-campus in Geneseo, 27 miles south of Rochester. Davis was a frat member and a lacrosse player at the State University of New York at Geneseo. He was a sophomore biochemistry major from Victor, near Rochester.

Police say they arrested several people for drug activity at the frat house in 2011 and made another arrest earlier this year.
