Kentucky University was found dead on Jan 20, at his apartment
in the Hidden Valley Apartment complex.
Parents P Subramannian and Sharavathi, state they
have been kept in the dark and have received contradictory statements
from the university, hospital and relatives that are confusing,
and that they suspect he was murdered.
They have written to the US as well as Indian authorities
seeking early information on the reasons for his demise. We want
to know whether it is a fault of his or something else.
According to the police, Mahesh Subramannian was
Computer and electrical engineering technology major died of undetermined
causes. An autopsy is being performed to discover the cause. Police
do not suspect foul play.
According to Dean of Students Matt Brown:
- Subramannian had family in the local area, though his parents
live in India.
- He came to America about four years ago to attend NKU's College
of Informatics and he was smart and hardworking.
- Last semester he began a project with Prof. James Walden to
test the security of the WiFi on the buses of the Transportation

saying that the last time he'd heard from him was before the Christmas
break. After that, Subramannian stopped responding to e-mails,
