DA to discuss death of freshman who needed help for alcohol


EASTON, Pa. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania prosecutor is planning a news conference on the death of a 19-year-old college freshman who died last week from blunt-force head injuries believed to be suffered in a fall.

Lafayette College in Easton has said that officers responding to a call about a student who'd been drinking found lacrosse recruit McCrae Williams unconscious near a dorm. He died in a hospital the next day. A coroner determined that Williams, of Weston, Massachusetts, died of blunt-force head injuries, but delayed a ruling on the manner of death pending toxicology results.

District Attorney John Morganelli will discuss the case Tuesday afternoon.

Williams was found around 4:20 p.m. on Sept. 10. Police in Easton have only said that Williams was involved in a "chain of events" that began the night before.
