Atlanta Police Department Leading Investigation
Many have expressed concerns regarding a recent incident on the Georgia Tech campus. In the interest of keeping the Tech community fully informed, I would like to provide the details
we have to date.
In response to a call at around 7 PM on August 21, Georgia Tech Police found a truck with a deceased male in a parking lot at 353 Ferst Drive. According to the Fulton County Medical
Examiner's report, the victim did not suffer external trauma. Toxicology reports are pending.
The victim was identified as Johnathan M. Grams. The Georgia Tech Registrar's Office has confirmed that Grams was a former student at the Institute, last enrolled in the fall of 2003 as a
mechanical engineering major.
Georgia Tech continues to cooperate with the Atlanta Police Department, the law enforcement agency in charge of the investigation.
