UB Student Found Dead Identified

Buffalo, NY (WBEN) The UB student who died in an off campus apartment over the weekend has been identified as a graduate of a Rochester area high school.

18 year old Nicholas Arieno was found dead Sunday. An autopsy determined the cause of death was inconclusive. He was a graduate of Greece's Athena High School.

Athena principal Jason Gianotti issued this statement: Athena students were notified of Nick's death today and the school had a moment of silence in his memory this morning. Extra counselors are on site today. Jason described Nick as a wonderful student who was actively involved. Most notably, he and another student started a business through the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) last year that won honors.
"As a school community we are taking time to grieve and remember Nick," Gianotti said. "He was a wonderful student and a very active member of our school community."
