SALISBURY, Md. – Preliminary autopsy reports indicate the weekend death of a 16-year-old Parkside High School student on the Salisbury University campus was medically-related, SU Police Chief Edwin Lashley said Tuesday.

The student, identified as Cameron Dashiell, was found late Sunday afternoon. EMS was called, however Lashley said Cameron was unresponsive and pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.  According to Lashley, the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation, which is leading the investigation into Cameron's death, has been told that preliminary medical examinations show no signs of trauma to the body.

The state Medical Examiner’s Office in Baltimore will continue the autopsy, attempting to pinpoint the cause of death. 

In a statement released Monday, Superintendent of Wicomico County Public Schools Dr. John Fredericksen said Cameron was in his third year at Parkside High School.

“Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends at this very difficult time,” Fredericksen said. He said Parkside High staff members were informed of Cameron’s death Monday morning and extra personnel were on hand at Parkside to provide support to students and staff. Support staff members are also available at James M. Bennett High, where a number of Cameron’s former classmates attend, Fredericksen said. 

SU police are cooperating with the WBI in the investigation, Lashley said.
