4-6 weeks to determine cause of Dungy’s death
LUTZ, Fla. — A medical examiner’s preliminary report Friday confirmed that the 18-year-old son of Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy took his own life, although the cause of death will not be determined for four to six weeks.
Dr. Jacqueline Lee released the findings and said there was no evidence of foul play. Lee ordered a toxicology study, and until it is finished the cause and manner of James Dungy’s death are listed as pending.
His girlfriend found him unresponsive early Thursday, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Carter said. Carter said evidence at the scene indicated he had killed himself.
A sheriff’s deputy performed CPR before an ambulance took him to University Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The Tampa Tribune reported on its Web site Friday night that James Dungy had been involuntarily admitted to a hospital after seeking help from a deputy outside his apartment on Oct. 21, saying he had taken an overdose of painkillers and called for an ambulance.
