KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) – (UPDATED 9:30 a.m.) An investigator says foul play isn’t suspected in the death of a student found unresponsive in his dorm room at Truman State University in Missouri’s Kirksville.

Adair County Coroner Brian Noe tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that an autopsy Wednesday on 18-year-old freshman William Batterson of Richmond Heights in suburban St. Louis was inconclusive. Toxicology tests are pending.

Batterson was found unresponsive by his roommates Monday and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Noe described the circumstances of Batterson’s case as “nothing suspicious, nothing criminal by any means.” Noe says he knows of no pre-existing medical condition to explain the death.

Batterson’s services will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at The Lupton Chapel in the St. Louis suburb of University City.
