Memorial mass planned for two deceased ND students

A memorial mass will be held Tuesday night for the two Notre Dame students who died over the weekend.

The mass will take place on campus at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at 10:00 p.m.

Timothy R. Aher, a second year Notre Dame Law School student from Brookfield, Connecticut, died tragically and unexpectedly Sunday in Ilford, England, a suburb of London. He was enrolled in the law school’s London Law Programme.

Aher was 25 years old.

Connor P. McGrath, a sophomore from Oklahoma City, died Sunday on campus.

A resident of Siegfried Hall, he had spent the night in the room of a friend in Dillon Hall, where he previously had resided. His body was discovered by friends at approximately 1:40 p.m.

Twenty-year-old McGrath intended to major in business.

Consistent with the University’s protocol, Notre Dame Security Police requested assistance from a St. Joseph County police investigative unit.

The St. Joe County Coroner's office performed an autopsy Monday afternoon, and has said the results indicate McGrath died of natural causes.

He had a history of diabetes.

A final toxicology report will come back later this week.
