Pa. Student Found Dead in Tennessee Dorm Room

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A 21-year-old Austin Peay State University student has been found dead in his dorm room and police believe he died of a medical condition.

Johnathan LeCoure's friends had not seen him since Friday and asked a dorm resident assistant to check on him, said Austin Peay spokesman Bill Persinger.

LeCoure, a chemistry major from Reading, Pa., was found around 7 p.m. Sunday in his room in Rawlins Hall.

Clarksville police are investigating the death, although it appears to be from natural causes, according to local paper "The Leaf-Chronicle."
