Louisiana Tech’s beloved mascot, Tech XX, died of a heat stroke over the weekend.

The search for Louisiana Tech University’s mascot is off, as it has been discovered that Tech XX passed away.

According to a news release from the university, Tech officials learned of the passing of Tech XX through communication with Dr. Patrick Sexton, with whom Tech XX lived.

“Regretfully, I learned (Wednesday) morning that through negligence of an employee, Tech XX was left outside too long on Sunday evening and passed away from a heat stroke,” Sexton said. “That employee unfortunately chose to handle it the wrong way and attempted to cover it up. Due to this negligence, the employee is no longer employed by Sexton Animal Health Center.”
