Autopsy inconclusive in NJ athlete's death

An autopsy has failed to determine what caused the death of a New Jersey high school football standout who died during track practice. Relatives of 17-year-old Kittim Sherrod said they were told the autopsy results were "inconclusive." But they hope an analysis of tissue samples - which could take up to two months to complete - will provide them with further details.

Edison High School officials have said Sherrod and other track team members were warming up with a run through town when Sherrod collapsed Thursday.

Team members then flagged down a car and took the 6-foot-1, 170-pound senior to the hospital, but he was pronounced dead there a short time later.
