From a Woodbridge Police Press Release:

A 20-year-old 2012 Amity Grad from Woodbridge reportedly was found dead following a hike in the West Rock Woods on Sunday.

According to the report, Sam Shekman, 20, went for a hike on West Rock early Sunday evening and when he failed to return home by 11 p.m, his family notified Woodbridge police

Woodbridge Police, assisted by members of the Woodbridge Fire Department, Seymour Police Department, Hamden Police Department and the Connecticut State Police, searched West Rock and eventually located Shekman on some rocks in the woods.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

From the initial investigation, police said Shekman appeared to have accidentally fallen from the mountain/cliff area onto the rocks below.

The investigation is continuing and an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday in Farmington.

Police said Shekman is a student at Eastern Connecticut State University, where he played rugby.
