Mysterious Death on a Franklin County Bus

An autopsy is scheduled Tuesday for an 8 year old boy who mysteriously passed away on a Franklin County bus. Monday afternoon Franklin County authorities responded to Strain Japan School in reference to an unresponsive child. Deputies determined that an 8 year old Sullivan boy had reported a headache to his mother before school and was given Tylenol or Aspirin. The school reported that there were no indications of illness during the day, and after school, Bradley boarded his bus as usual. After he boarded the bus he fell to the floor and the bus driver began performing CPR until emergency crews arrived. He was transported to Missouri Baptist Hospital in Sullivan where he was pronounced deceased. The cause of death has not been determined. An autopsy is scheduled for this morning at the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office in St. Louis. No foul play is suspected at this time.

The 36-year-old right-hander will earn the league minimum 500-thousand-dollars after making 15.25-million each of the last three seasons. Lackey was acquired from Boston at the trade deadline and his contract had a clause allowing for a league-minimum option after missing the entire 2012 season due to elbow surgery.
