Family, classmates and friends are mourning the loss of 2015 Oswego High School graduate Tyler Behnke.

Behnke, 19, was found dead at about 8:45 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10, at his fraternity house on the campus of Eastern Illinois University. A cause of death has not been determined, but the Coles County Coroner has said there were no signs of foul play. An investigation is still ongoing.

According to a report in the Daily Eastern News, Behnke was a sophomore business management major. He was remembered by fraternity brothers for his ability make people laugh. 

"He was the funniest and most entertaining person," said the report.
