SD School Of Mines Suicide Victim Identified

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Authorities have identified a South Dakota School of Mines and Technology faculty member who apparently killed himself on campus.

Thirty-seven-year-old Alberto Lemut died last Thursday. Police say he died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The Rapid City school canceled classes in the Electrical Engineering/Physics building that day and made counselors available.

School President Heather Wilson says Lemut was a physicist and the principal investigator for an experiment at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead. She says he joined the School of Mines faculty this semester from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
