Police confirm cause of Snyder death, family asks for privacy during funeral

Police say the death of 22-year-old Matthew Snyder, the son of K-State associate head coach Sean Snyder and grandson of head football coach Bill Snyder, has been ruled a suicide.

The Wichita Eagle reports that a Riley County Police Department report obtained through an open records request says Snyder died last week of asphyxiation at his home in Manhattan.

Police documents says Riley County police responded to an emergency call made by his father, Sean. No one else was injured and no foul play is suspected.

The Snyder family is requesting that only family and friends attend the funeral on Thursday at a Manhattan church. Kansas State Athletics Director Gene Taylor said in a statement last week that the Snyder family is `”greatly appreciative of the outpouring of support.”
