Detroit deaths mystery lingers even after autopsy

1:33 pm on 20 October 2009

Autopsies for the three men who died running the Detroit Marathon yesterday have been completed but it's still unclear what caused the deaths.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office may take several more weeks to determine why the three men died, all of them on the half marathon.

Two of them collapsed in a similar area during the race in downtown Detroit while the other, the youngest, finished before collapsing.
