Police identify man who fell to his death in State College

Police have identified the 33-year-old man who plunged to his death Thursday afternoon from a seventh-floor balcony on South Allen Street.

Beau Rodgers Griffis died in the fall, State College police said in a brief statement Friday morning.

Police released no other new details in the statement, and said an investigation continues.

Griffis lived in a seventh-floor unit in the building at 310 S. Allen St.

On Thursday, State College police chief Tom King said investigators are working to determine whether the man fell or intentionally jumped at about 2:50 p.m. from the top story of the building.

Investigators do not suspect foul play, King said Thursday.

The cause of death, according to autopsy results released Friday by Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers, was head trauma. King said Thursday that investigators would seek toxicology tests.
