College football player was murdered in Mexico: family

The Massachusetts college football player found dead in Mexico over spring break was murdered, his family said in their first public comments since his mysterious death, according to a report.
The Ohio family of Andrew Dorogi, 21, a senior at elite Amherst College did not elaborate, due to the ongoing homicide investigation, a spokeswoman told the Boston Globe.
The 6-foot-1 running back was found fatally injured on tracks at a subway station outside Mexico City on March 16; hours earlier he had telephoned his parents to tell them he was returning to school after a vacation with pals in Cabo San Lucas.
Without naming Dorogi, Mexican prosecutors said last month that a man whose body was found on train tracks in Mexico City apparently died after falling out of a train window and getting electrocuted by a 750-volt third rail.
Dorogi “had been seen behaving erratically,” in the subway prior to his body being found, and witnesses at the time recalled a tall, blonde, possibly drugged “gringo” the Daily Mail reported.
An economics major, he had been scheduled to graduate from the college later this month.
“I don’t think the Mexican government is really doing that much,” Dorogi’s grandfather, Joseph, 86, told the Boston Globe.
“I’d like to know what happened.”
