Autopsy results show that pneumonia killed an 18-year-old Wayne State College football player last weekend.
Deputy Wayne County Attorney Amy Miller said Thursday that bacterial pneumonia filled Eddie Key III’s lungs with fluid.
Miller says Key likely died in his sleep sometime Saturday morning.
Key was found Saturday evening in his dorm room at the campus in northeast Nebraska.
Key was a defensive end for Wayne State last fall.
He graduated from Lincoln North Star High School in 2013.
Key’s funeral will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Lincoln.
