AMHERST TIMES



This a photo of the student housing  called the Villas on Rench Rd. I was told by U.B. Security police nearly ever weekend a party is held in one or more of these apartment or other students apartments. This past weekend a student party was held there hundreds of students were give appearance  tickets for being intoxicated. They will appear before the Amherst Town Court.

One young student, age 20, from Westchester County fell off the roof of one of these three story buildings.When the police arrived  the young man was  unresponsive and freed dead. He was taken to ECMC in serious condition.

Where was security in this dorm as hundreds of students were having this wild party? Who set up the party? When the developer of the dorms came before the town board, I asked the developer how many security people would be in every dorm, he said one per dorm floor. What happen? Was he or she sleeping or wasn't there that night of this party?
