Preliminary Report Shows No Health Hazard in Dorm, ASU Says

DECEMBER 4, 2006 - Posted at 7:44 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - A preliminary report has concluded there is no health hazard in the Arkansas State University dormitory where a student fell sick and later died last month. 

ASU contracted with Morris and Associates to do an inspection of Kays Hall, where Corey Rodgers lived before his death on November 19.  Rodgers' cause of death has not yet been determined, though his family suspects that mold in the building may have sickened their son.

According to a press release issued late Saturday by the university, the consulting firm's preliminary report found that "there is no health hazard in Kays Hall and no reason to remove students from the building."
