The body found last weekend in a Bellingham park was a 19-year-old former Western Washington University student, Bellingham police and WWU officials say.
The man’s body was found Saturday morning in Franklin Park, but had no identification, police said. Officers checked his fingerprints but could not match them with any in a law-enforcement database.
On Sunday, police received a call from someone who believed the dead man could be his missing roommate, which was confirmed by police.
The man has been identified as William Viktor Litvin, who was from Chelan, police said. According to WWU officials, Litvin last attended the university during spring quarter, and was not enrolled at WWU during the current fall quarter.
An autopsy Monday did not identify the cause of death but did indicate the presence of illegal drugs in his system, police said. The complete toxicology report will not be known for several days.

The 17-year-old boy who died Saturday after a double stabbing at a party in Bellingham has been identified as Davonte R. Thompson.
Bellingham police say the Thompson and an injured 18-year-old man were dropped off at a hospital early Saturday. Police learned from witnesses about a suspect and his possible whereabouts.
Police then went to a residence where a party had taken place the night before. When officers were questioning two residents, the suspect walked into the house covered in mud and apparent blood. He took off running, but was subdued shortly thereafter.
Police say Thompson died of his injuries while the 18-year-old was treated and released.
Officers arrested 21-year-old Geoff K. Spain for investigation of second-degree murder and first-degree assault.
