Medical Examiner Rules Lubbock Teen Died of Natural Causes

Toxicology tests now confirm what a Lubbock mother has said all along. The Lubbock Medical Examiner reports that 19-year-old Jonathan Trevino died of natural causes.

Friends found Trevino not breathing and without a heartbeat outside a home in the 5500 block of 1st Place on  August 7, 2007. EMS took him to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators thought alcohol may have contributed to Trevino's death, but his mother never believed that. Friends told her they went to a local restaurant that night and shared four pitchers of beer.

A toxicology test revealed Trevino had no alcohol in his blood, and only a small amount in his urine. The tests also showed Trevino took ibuprofen, but they did not find any other drugs in his system.
