According to an NYPD source who spoke with the New York Post on Monday, officers responded to a call on February 16 around 6 PM.

Upon entering the apartment on the corner of West 26th Street and 6th Avenue, officers found Pratt unresponsive.

Investigators also determined no foul play was involved in Pratt’s death, although an investigation into the young Google employee’s passing is still ongoing.

“The New York City Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death and the investigation remains ongoing,” said an NYPD source.

According to the Post, Pratt worked as both a partnership lead and an accounting manager with Google, and he worked in the technology giant’s NYC offices for nearly four years before his passing.

He reportedly lived in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn and was a graduate of Chicago’s Northwestern University.

Jenna Pratt, the deceased’s sister, has since organized a GoFundMe page for her late brother and family asking donors to make contributions to the Make-A-Wish Michigan Foundation and the National Alliance on Mental Illness in her brother’s name.

“These two charities represent our son and brother and the heart he had for the people around him,” Pratt’s sister wrote.
