Well it's my roommate's tv, so I'm not sure about the warranty. We've narrowed it down to maybe two possible causes. After doing some research we found that the 'liquid' in liquid crystal display isn't actually a liquid. It's just describing how ductile the crystals are.
Anyway, the two possible causes we've read about so far:
1.) There is some liquid in between two panes of glass inside the tv. Those could have broken and caused this, or
2.) We've read about a few cases in older buildings (like our apartment building) of rainwater seeping in from the roof and actually traveling through the coaxial cable and into the tv. That's our best bet right now, since the liquid that leaked seemed to be water. It was clear and has no scent. I still took a sample of it for whenever my roommate brings his tv to a repair shop to see wtf happened.
And here's a pic of where the tv was, and you can clearly see the liquid that pooled around part of the base of the tv:
