KUHF is reporting that the 20-year-old son of Enron's Jeff Skilling was found dead in his California apartment.

J.T. Skilling, a 2009 Episcopal graduate, was attending Chapman University in Orange, California.

His body was discovered by friends Tuesday. An autopsy will be conducted, including toxicology tests, but authorities say there was no evidence of foul play or "any obvious reason for his death," the station reports.

Jeff Skilling, the former Enron president, is currently serving 24 years in prison for fraud and conspiracy.
