KSAX TV in Alexandria has an update in the case of a teenager in Central Minnesota who died over the weekend.
Lance Lundsten, 18, initially was reported to have died by suicide, with his friends saying it was the result of being bullied for being gay. Then his father said his son had an enlarged heart, and claimed the county coroner said so.
Today, the county coroner says the teen had a slightly enlarged heart, but that doesn’t appear to be how Lundsten died, the TV station report.
So what did? That will depend on toxicology results, the station says.
