Police have released new details in the death of a Michigan State University student and Owosso native.

Dustyn Frolka, 19, posted a comment to his Twitter page on the night of his death.

His post read, "I've never done DMT and that is about to change." DMT, or Dimethyltryptamine, is a hallucinogenic drug.


Frolka, 19 was rushed Saturday night to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing where he was pronounced dead.


Police in Clinton County's Bath Township say they received a 911 call about 10:20 p.m. about a person "lying in the travel portion of I-69 at the East Lansing exit."

"We've used a lot of techonoloy in this case to pinpoint his exact locations,we know where his location was within minutes of where he was found, so we're working back from that," said Sargeant Gary Smith of the Bath Township Police Department.

Frolka was in respiratory distress, and only partially clothed when a passing motorist who is a nurse stopped and began first aid.

A benefit concert has been scheduled for April 25 in Frolka's hometown of Owosso, at the Hickory Lounge.
