The news of Oklahoma Sooners LB Austin Box's death has set off rapid speculation as to what caused the 22-year-old to unexpectedly pass away. But it sounds like fans and supporters may have to wait at least until Friday to find out the official story on what happened. As the Tulsa World reports:
A spokeswoman at the medical examiner's office said no cause of death is known and it's doubtful one will be known Thursday.
As we saw with Aaron Douglas' shocking death the week prior and pretty much every other tragedy of this kind, it can be easy for people to put a little too much stock in rumors in a situation like this before facts make their way out. For now, the only thing we definitely know is that Oklahoma has lost a student-athlete.
