Lafayette College student died of head injuries

Lafayette College student died of head injuries”

An autopsy on Wednesday determined that a Lafayette College lacrosse player died of "blunt force head injuries", according to the Lehigh County coroner, who said that the manner of death is pending further investigation and the results of toxicology tests.

Morgan Pichard, a freshman from MA, told The Morning Call she was introduced to Williams Friday.

The lacrosse team joined with about 500 other students in a vigil to mourn him Tuesday night.

"It is upsetting", she told the newspaper.

Easton police were called to Ruef Hall North Sunday afternoon for a medical emergency and found Williams in the parking lot.

An autopsy has revealed that a Pennsylvania college freshman found outside a campus dormitory died from head trauma.

He was pronounced dead at 5:02 p.m. Monday at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

The Lehigh County Coroner's Office is conducting an ongoing investigation into the death with the Easton Police Department, Northampton County district attorney's office and Lafayette College police. However, there were "no visible injuries", Coroner Scott Grim told the Morning Call.

Easton police deferred comment to the Northampton County District Attorney's Office.

Both the Call and LehighValleyLive report the authorities are probing whether alcohol played a role in the freshman's death.

Police in Easton have only said that 19-year-old McCrae Williams was involved in a "chain of events" that began Saturday at Lafayette College and ended with his death at a hospital Monday afternoon.

In a letter to students and parents, the headmaster of Noble and Greenough School - the MA academy Williams graduated from in June - said the 19-year-old athlete had suffered a "major head injury" after a fall.

"McCrae fell over the weekend and suffered a major head injury", she wrote in a letter sent to parents.

Williams's Facebook page says he's originally from London, England.

The headmaster of Noble and Greenough School in Dedham did not specify in a letter to parents how 19-year-old McCrae Williams might have fallen. "Our hearts ache for McCrae's parents, Dianne and Chris, and his brother, Chase, as they face this unfathomable loss".
