Coroner Says Daniel Lule Died Because Of An Enlarged Heart

Posted by wlpo on August 10, 2012

Daniel Lule died of an enlarged heart, that’s according to autopsy findings of the Bureau County Coroner.

Janice Wamhoff says for being 17-years old, Lule’s heart should have weighed 450 grams.  Instead it weighed nearly twice that.  Wamhoff says more tests are being done on the heart to see if there were more problems.  She says Lule’s enlarged heart was something that would not have shown up in a routine check-up.

Wamhoff says more testing will also be done to show that heat wasn’t a factor in his death.  Temperatures were in the low 80s when Lule collapsed on Wednesday.
