The death of a Blackburn College student is being ruled a homicide. 

Carlinville officials say Joshua Ramza died last month in his dorm room from an opium overdose, which he apparently took willingly after being supplied the drug. 

Police Chief David Haley says despite the coroner's homicide ruling, it doesn't necessarily mean someone was responsible.  Authorities are still investigating.
