Massillon teen dead, heat may be to blame

(MASSILLON, OH) - Another local student is dead and the heat may be to blame. 

Though it's summer break, counselors will be on hand Monday morning at the Perry High School library in Massillon after a student died on Thursday. 

According to a post on the district's Facebook page Friday night, Mitchell Williams, who just completed his junior year, was found laying on the ground while working for a lawn care company. According to reports, authorities believe the cause of death may be heat stroke because of the hot temperatures. 

It follows several area teens who died in car accidents in recent weeks and a Kent State University student who died after collapsing at freshman football practice this week. Preliminary results show that teen likely died of hyperthermia.
