Andrew Dorogi's family says Amherst College student was murdered in Mexico

The family of Andrew Dorogi, an Amherst College student found dead in Mexico City in March, said this week that the 21-year-old was murdered after vacationing in the country with several friends. 

The family, which issued its first public comments on the investigation to the Boston Globe Friday, said Dorogi was killed while returning from Cabo San Lucas, in Mexico. 

A spokeswoman for the family did not provide further details to the newspaper regarding Dorogi's death, due to the ongoing investigation.

Details surrounding the Amherst College senior's death and the investigation into it have largely remained under wraps since Dorogi's body was found on March 16.

A US State Department official said Friday that local authorities in Mexico were leading the probe, the Globe reported.

Mexican officials told ABC News in April that Dorogi was found dead on railroad tracks near a train station in a Mexico City neighborhood. The Mexico City Attorney General's Office said an autopsy determined Dorogi, a member of the Amherst football team, had died from electrocution, the news outlet reported.

Amherst College, in response to reports that Dorogi was electrocuted, said "it is important that the matter is fully investigated and that the truth becomes known."

Amherst College President Carolyn "Biddy" Martin, in an earlier April campus-wide email, stated that Dorogi had not committed suicide.

Dorogi's grandfather, Joseph Dorogi, told the Globe that he was frustrated with investigation.

"I don't think the Mexican government is really doing that much," he reportedly said in a telephone interview. 



Joseph Dorogi said his grandson was scheduled to return to the United States via Mexico City International Airport, according to the Globe. He added that he'd "like to know what happened."

"The one thing I know is he's gone and there's nothing we can say or do that can change that. That's the way his parents feel and assessing the blame doesn't bring him back. He's gone," Joseph Dorogi reportedly said.

Andrew Dorogi, an economics major who grew up in Ohio, had lined up a job as an investment banking analyst at Wells Fargo starting a month after his May graduation.
