Authorities investigate death of Auburn student

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Police are investigating the cause of death of an Auburn University student who collapsed this week.

The Auburn Police Division says 22-year-old Kyle Nixon was pronounced dead at 1:32 a.m. on Thursday after he collapsed at a duplex apartment off campus.

Chief Tommy Dawson told the Opelika-Auburn News Sunday that no foul play is suspected. He says Nixon was visiting friends and was discovered almost immediately after he collapsed.

Nixon's body was sent to Montgomery for an autopsy.
