I won't post the link to the story because it's been all over the place, but a kid died after being beaten (allegedly) by guards during his boot camp "stay". For some reason, his death remains a mystery - but that's not what I want to get into.

The local affiliate here just offered their "latest update" on the 2nd autopsy...are you ready? Here's what the screen just showed all of Central Florida:

"Teen likely Died from not breathing"

carry on

I'm sure they originally had asphyxiation, then changed it either to save space or stay away from terminology people might not know... unfortunately, whoever did it obviously didn't stop to think if they were making a "duh" statement...
