A 27-year-old former U.S. Armysoldier was found dead in his Baltimore County apartment Saturday afternoon, police said.

Timothy Allan Coyer, of Stevensville, was found dead by roomates in their apartment in the 7700 block of Greenview Terrace in Towson at about 2:30 p.m., according to a statement from Baltimore Coutny Police spokesman Lt. Robert McCullough.

Homicide investigators have not been asked to investigate, although the cause of death is not yet know, McCullough said.

Coyer's body is being examined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause and manner of death, he said. Towson University Police also were notified and responded to the apartment.

According to Coyer's Facebook page, he attended Kent Island High School in Stevensville and served in the Army from February 2008 until June 2011. At least part of that time he was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. He was a member of the Maryland National Guard and studied at Towson University, the page said.

The Towerlight, Towson's campus newspaper, also identified Coyer as a veteran and student.
