Missouri College: Student Likely Died of Natural Causes
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri Valley College officials say the death of an 18-year-old freshman who was found dead in his dorm room appears to be from natural causes.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Sherrell Smith was found Friday night. He was part of the first graduating class from Lift for Life, a charter school in St. Louis.
Life for Life administrator Katrice Noble says Smith was a diabetic but seemed to have that under control. She says he came to the Missouri Valley campus Wednesday so he could start training for football.
Lift for Life was hosting a vigil for Smith Sunday night at the St. Louis school.
