    Two students at Towson University died in separate off-campus incidents over the weekend.

    At about 1:45 a.m. Saturday, police say that junior Ryan Bailey was walking north on York Road in Towson when he was struck and killed by a passing car. Baltimore County Police are still looking for the car that struck Bailey and have described it as an older model silver or white box-style car.

    Shortly before 3 p.m., the body of a second student, identified by police as 27-year-old Timothy Coyer, was found by his roommates at their off-campus apartment. A cause of death has not yet been determined.

    Sophomore Lindsay Plumley told WBAL that both Bailey and Coyer were active in the school's Greek community.

    "It's really disconcerting because I didn't know them personally, but the Greek community is a unified thing," Plumley said. "So when something happens to one of us, it happens to all of us."

    The campus Greek council is expected to hold a vigil Monday afternoon.
