    There's a reason the cause of death in this case has been kept secret and it's not because the family wants privacy.

    More than likely his actions or behavior caused his death. Either accidently or on purpose.


    Why else?

    Wouldn't that fall under the family's privacy?

    When the death of someone makes national news, I think a cause of death should be made public. Especially when they are holding public events to memorialize him.

    People don't give up the right to be treated with respect and dignity, in life or death, simply because they are famous. They may very well give those things up, to some extent, by their actions - but that isn't something this young ballplayer ever did, that I'm aware of. What possible difference could the cause of death make to anyone outside of his friends and family?

    That said, if - IF - this young man died as the result of the use of illegal substances, I feel that it would be a valuable public service to everyone, particularly young people, to let it be known, as a sort of object lesson. If publicizing something like caused just one individual to avoid or give up those potentially life-taking poisons, it would be a good thing. That should still, however, be a family decision.

    Isn't the autopsy and/or death certificate public record?

    When public events memorializing him are being conducted, people should know what caused his death.

    Can these records be sealed?

    I don't agree with that but I do believe that a Death Certificate is a public record. This will list the cause of death. In Ohio an autopsy is also a public record. Issue a Public Records Request to the coroner in the county that this kid died in and you should get your information.
