The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office declared on Thursday that a body found near Boelter Hall at UCLA was that of a Santa Monica resident who committed suicide.

The deceased was identified as Reynaldo Quitos, 47, a UCLA library employee who suffered “multiple traumatic injuries.”

Quitos was an assistant in the Southern Regional Library Facility located across the campus. His body was found Tuesday.

Quitos’ passing marks the second suicide this month on a college campus in the Los Angeles area. The first being Tian Lu, 30, a Santa Monica College student who jumped off a parking structure on May 4.
