FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - The death of a 23-year old TCU student who was found dead at his off-campus residence Tuesday morning has been ruled a homicide.

Fort Worth police and emergency services were called to the GrandMarc at Westberry Place Apartments on West Bowie after 23-year-old Stewart Trese was reportedly found in the hallway of his residence.

Fort Worth PD Homicide Investigators said Trese's death was the "result of a an altercation," and that there was apparent trauma to the student's body.

No arrests have been made, but a campus spokeswoman said law enforcement has located the suspect and that there is no concern to TCU students' safety.

A manner or cause of death has yet to be determined, and the investigation is considered ongoing.

According to a campus-side e-mail sent from Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Kathy Cavins-Tull, Trese was a senior marketing major.
