Penn junior dies Sunday


The student's death is the second since the beginning of winter break




Pulkit Singh, an Engineering and Wharton junior, died Sunday. He was 20 years old.

The cause of death is being investigated, the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed in an email on Monday.

Singh, known to friends as Josh, was a dual-degree student majoring in computer science. He was from Long Island, New York, and attended Bethpage High School.

Penn Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding Singh’s death, but no foul play is suspected, University spokesperson Stephen MacCarthy said Sunday.

This marks the second student death over winter break. Kevin Zhao, an Engineering and Wharton senior, died while traveling in China with his family.
