Alcohol, drugs don't show up in Wayne State student's autopsy

WAYNE, Neb. (AP) — Preliminary autopsy results show no signs that alcohol or a drug overdose was involved in the death of an 18-year-old Wayne State College football player.

Eddie Key the Third's body was found Saturday evening in his dorm room at the campus in northeast Nebraska.

Wayne Police Chief Marlen Chinn says it may take weeks before complete autopsy and toxicology results are available. Authorities believe Key died in his sleep Saturday morning. He was last seen alive about 4 a.m. Saturday.

Key played defensive end for Wayne State last fall after he graduated from Lincoln North Star High School in 2013.
