Cause of death not yet known for missing boy found in pool

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Authorities haven't determined what caused the death of a young boy whose body was found this week in the swimming pool at a Toledo apartment complex, several days after he was reported missing. The Lucas County Coroner’s office announced Thursday that a preliminary autopsy conducted on three-year-old Braylen Noble found “no anatomic cause of death and no gross evidence of trauma.” Drowning hasn't been ruled out as a cause of death, but officials say further investigation is needed before a final ruling can be made. Noble was found Wednesday at the Hunters Ridge Apartments. The child, who had autism and was nonverbal, had been reported missing Friday by his grandmother.
