I saw this on the local news. Prayers for the family, friends and classmates of both Duke students.

Grape was a member of Alpha Delta Phi fraternity, and his fraternity brothers released a statement Thursday calling Grape a close friend.
"Matt was a bright, compassionate, incredibly loyal man, and will be missed not only by us but by his many friends in the Duke community," the statement said. "His death is a shocking tragedy and we send our prayers and condolences to Matt's family for their loss."
He is survived by his parents, Peter A. and Linda Grape; his brother, Peter, who graduated from Duke in 2008; and his sister Katie.
Matthew's brother Peter, Trinity '08, is a good friend of my daughters, and we know the parents slightly also. They are such a nice family--it's truly a shame.
A tragedy. My prayers go out for him and his family.
We hold the Grape family and the Royster family in our prayers. So tragic and sobering. Hope that both families will feel God's healing grace over time...
