UA frosh dies after apparent stairwell fall
A Manzanita-Mohave resident died early yesterday morning, more than a week after he was found at the bottom of an outdoor campus staircase with severe injuries. Brian Scott Balcer, 18, had been in critical condition at University Medical Center since Oct. 17, when he apparently fell from a flight of stairs outside the second floor of the Art building, 1031 N. Olive Road. Balcer died at 2:22 a.m., said Mike Downing, Pima County medical examiner. "I'm listing cause of death as accidental," Downing said.
