Emergency services were called to the Newman Center late Tuesday night for an unresponsive man, who was later pronounced dead.

The man was identified as Craig Lorraine, a 45-year-old man, said Mary Carey, the spokesperson for the office of District Attorney David Sullivan, in an interview with The Republican. She said he was believed to be homeless, and lived on the streets of Northampton.

Officers of the Amherst Police Department responded to the call that reported an unresponsive man in the center. The officers transported him to Cooley Dickinson Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

His name was released after authorities contacted Lorraine’s relatives.

The Amherst Police are still investigating the cause of death, and the results of his autopsy, said Carey to The Republican. Officers said there is no sign of foul play in his death.

The Newman Center, located at 472 North Pleasant St. near the University of Massachusetts campus, is a place for Catholic students to attend mass, prayer sessions, and group meetings. The center was open until 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday night.
