What happened to Harrison Outram?
Harrison Outram was found dead in his room on the main campus of Curtin University with a fatal wound, which the officials found consistent with self-inflicted injuries. Officials confirmed the incident and revealed that Harrison was found with a sizable handgun.
However, the officials refused to show whether Harrison was a licensed firearm owner. The circumstances which led to his death are under coronial investigation, but the incident is deemed non-suspicious.
The academic community mourns Harrison Outram. He was a dedicated student and was known to many in the community. Professor Mark Ogden, the faculty’s Pro Vice-Chancellor, expressed his deep sorrow over the ‘tragedy’ in an email sent to science and engineering students.
He condoned Outram’s family, friends, classmates, and colleagues. He also advised those needing assistance to seek support from the Student Wellbeing Advisory Service on campus. Furthermore, he informed the students that they could also request assessment flexibility.
We sincerely hope that more regulations are included in the firearm license laws to prevent deaths by firearms. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families who have lost their loved ones in the hate crime, accidents, and self-inflicted injuries.
