Temple Student Found Dead in Off Campus Apartment

Temple officials notified the community today of the death of Daniel Duignam, a third-year business student in the FOX School of Business.

Duignam was found dead in his apartment on the 1700 block of Diamond at approximately 10 p.m. Saturday night. The cause of death was ruled to have been multiple gunshot wounds.

Temple Police sent out a TU alert Saturday night warning students to avoid the area. The incident was officially addressed the following Sunday morning in an email from Temple University President, Richard M. Englert.

While police do not yet have suspect in custody, Temple officials say that this may not have been an isolated incident. In response to such acts, TUPD presence has thus been increased both on campus and in the surrounding areas.

Duignam is the sixth Temple student to die this academic year. Last semester saw the deaths of five students, including the murder of student Jenna Burleigh.

Anyone with information regarding the case is urged to call TUPD’s anonymous tip line at 215-204-6493. 

Students seeking help coping with events like these are encouraged to reach out to Temple’s Tuttleman Counseling Services.
