The youngest son of imprisoned Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling has been found dead in his apartment in Santa Ana, Calif., according several media sources.
20-year-old John Taylor J.T. Skilling was a sophomore at Chapman University in Orange, Calif.
According to Jeffrey Skilling's attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, authorities have not yet determined a cause of death but have ruled out foul play or suicide.
The Orange County Coroner's says the final cause of death is pending toxicology results.
Petrocelli said the young man’s classmates became worried because they had not seen Skilling for some time. Late Tuesday night, they broke into his apartment in Santa Ana, CA, and found him dead.
JT’s father, who is serving a 24-year prison term for his role in connection with Enron's collapse, will seek a temporary release from jail to attend his son's funeral, Petrocelli noted.
