Stafford had been enrolled in the Public Diplomacy graduate program at USC's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism up until January 2012. Prior to attending USC, he had graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2010.

No cause of death has been released by the Coroner's Office and a security hold is still in place on the case.
