Student Dies Of Natural Causes

BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. (AP) – A coroner has ruled that a 22-year-old student found dead in a dormitory room at a vocational training school in southwestern Pennsylvania died of natural causes.

Indiana County Coroner Michael Baker said preliminary autopsy results in the death of Stephen Ardell Erman of Newark, Ohio, were consistent with “a medical cause of death.’’ Baker said Erman apparently died of pre-existing medical conditions. He did not elaborate in a news release Thursday. Toxicology tests were negative for alcohol and drug abuse.
