Death at Texas 'Occupy' Camp Suspected to be Drug-Related

DENTON, Texas – Police on Sunday identified a man found dead in a tent at the "Occupy Denton" protest campsite on the grounds of the University of North Texas (UNT).

Darwin Cox, 23, died at around 4:30 p.m. local time Saturday, according to a police press release.

University and city police found his body at the eight-tent encampment after someone contacted authorities between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Saturday, UNT spokesman Buddy Price told KNTU Radio.

His cause of death has not yet been determined, pending toxicology results.

An "Occupy Denton" press release described him as "a fellow occupier, a kind and idealistic young man and a friend" whose "lifelong struggle with drug addiction" was suspected to be a factor in his death

Protest organizers said he was homeless when he joined the "Occupy" movement last month.


Cox's body was taken from the camp by a Denton County coroner about 8:30pm, the North Texas Daily reported.


Ok really, this occupy 'BS' has gone on way too long. Crimes are getting worse because of it. This Darwin fella was homeless. So that makes it very clear that he didn't give a damn about occupy crap. He was in it for the free food and shelter. And most likely died because of poor living, being on drugs and being on the streets.

But the whole occupy crowd needs to be banned from grouping up. It's just too chaotic and dangerous. This has been proven time and again. Rapes, robbery, deaths! The list goes on. And really, it's accomplishing nothing. Most of the nation is just annoyed with these guys.
