The family of Andrew Dorogi, the college football player from Massachusetts who was discovered dead in Mexico over spring break, claims he was murdered.

In their first public statement since his mysterious death, the family of the 21-year-old, Amherst College senior, did not elaborate on the details of his alleged murder, due to the ongoing homicide probe, a spokesperson told the Boston Globe.

The running back was discovered fatally wounded on train tracks at a subway station outside Mexico City in March, according to Masslive.com.

Hours before, he had called his parents in Ohio to tell them he was going back to school after vacationing with his friends in Cabo San Lucas.

Andrew Dorogi called his mom Jonetta (second right) saying he was at Mexico City’s international airport and coming home from spring break – but hours later was discovered dead at a suburban metro station miles away.

Without identifying Andrew Dorogi, Mexican prosecutors said last month that a man whose body was discovered on train tracks in Mexico City reportedly died after he fell out of a train window and got electrocuted by a 750-volt third rail.

Dorogi “had been seen behaving erratically,” in the subway before his body was recovered, and witnesses at the time described seeing a tall, blonde, possibly drugged “gringo” according to the Daily Mail.

An economics major, he was getting ready to graduate from the college later this month.

“I don’t think the Mexican government is doing that much,” Dorogi’s grandfather, Joseph, told the Boston Globe. “I’d like to know what happened.”
