COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC/WIS) -

The Richland County Coroner's Office confirmed that a 20-year-old Mt. Pleasant man died at the University of South Carolina campus Saturday afternoon.

A USC spokesperson said that the man, Daniel G. Osterkamp, was a visitor.  He would have turned 21 this weekend on September 11. Osterkamp was found unresponsive around 11:30 a.m. Saturday in the dorm room of a friend.

As is standard in any on-campus death, the university said it has called in the State Law Enforcement Division to investigate.

The coroner said an autopsy performed on Sunday didn't confirm the cause of death. Results from an autopsy and toxicology tests are still pending.

According to Osterkamp's sister, his funeral will be held on Thursday at 11 a.m. at East Cooper Baptist Church in Mt. Pleasant. The family will receive friends on Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. at Stuhrs Funeral Chapel in Mt. Pleasant.
