NOoooooo ! Horrible!
Poor little guy. What happened? Will it be reported in MSM as to cause of death? We'll have to wait & see.
Manor Township looks entirely rural, from what I can observe via Google Maps. Why there? Or was he just taking a walk, kind of wandering around and just being away and alone?
Kidnapped/murdered, accident, meds/seizure/OD, vehicle hit & run, or self-harm? So young, so young.
Prayers for his grieving family and for the university.
Dear Campus Community,
It is with a grieving heart that I let you know of the death of 19-year-old Matthew Mindler from Hellertown, Pennsylvania, a first-year student at Millersville University. Our thoughts of comfort and peace are with his friends and family during this difficult time.
A search had been underway for Matthew since Thursday, after he was reported missing. Millersville University Police and law enforcement agencies from the area had been searching for him since that time. Matthew was found deceased this morning, Saturday, August 28 in Manor Township near campus. Matthew was transported to the Lancaster County Forensic Center by the Coroner for further investigation.
This is a time of grief for the family, our campus and the community. I ask that the campus community come together to support each other, and our students, during this difficult time.
Students in need of support are encouraged to contact the Millersville Counseling Center (717) 871-7821, chaplains within Campus Ministries, Health Services (717) 871-5250 and the Center for Health Education and Promotion (717) 871-4141. Employees impacted should contact the State Employee Assistance Program at 1-800-692-7459.

Just heartbreaking. A parent's worst nightmare.
He looks so sad in that picture. RIP Matthew, so young.
I agree. His eyes look really dark in other pictures he has blue eyes.
I didn't realize this until SweetTooth brought up the sadness. My son's college ID was horrid, so I brushed it off. But now that I look at it again, and you mention the once vivid blue eyes, I see the sadness now too. I hope self-harm was not the case -- those have to be the worst on families. We have just come off a year and a half of covid restrictions and isolation, and at that age, it's exceptionally stifling I would assume.
I tried to look up info regarding student suicide but I'm not finding too much specifically related to that. Other than men are much more likely to be successful in doing so.
Him leaving with a backpack seemed like he was intentionally going somewhere to eat, study or meet with someone. I've often read that suicidal people leave stuff behind and often give stuff away.
I'll be anxious to hear if he sent any communication to anyone that evening.
Child Actor Matthew Mindler Dead at 19
Child actor Matthew Mindler found dead near college campus
Lancaster Co news wants everyone to pay, so I can’t send a link.
I've only seen "unintended death" used in overdose cases. Big sigh.
Obituary for Matthew Paul Mindler | Allen R. Horne Funeral Home
This family has had a lot of loss recently if this obit was for Matthew’s father.
I don't think that's Matthew's father. His brother's not mentioned (Derek Mindler)
Yes that’s my guess. Plus he wasn’t far from the sidewalk, the way it sounds. That tells me he was in a hurry to use. There has been a lot of fentanyl in the area. So very sad for him and his family.
That's what I understand to be true of the area. I wonder if he was alone that night. Tragic either way.
I imagine he was, he was new to the area. Definitely a guess but I believe it was suicide by drugs. I wonder how many room mates he had?
Definitely didn’t go far .
Handsome kid. Life ahead of him. This is heartbreaking. My deepest and sincere condolences to his mom.
Although I can't see the comments on Twitter from reading our kind and reliable WS comments I am now "assuming " an overdose may have been involved?
Hate to preach to the choir. There is no more opiates as we knew back when. As @MyJoey mentioned everything is cut with fentanyl. Even "hippie drugs" like mushrooms and such got the fentanyl. Every single time you use it's Russian roulette.
Mods if not appropriate please remove. No matter the cause of this talented young man's death the world lost another promising kid.
