Still no word on cause of Davidson's death

Tuesday marked one month since the sudden death of 18-year-old Highbridge resident and basketball star Andre "Pop" Davidson Jr. , but there is still no word from the city medical examiner on the cause of his death. Megan Cuccia, a spokesperson for the examiner's office, said Wednesday that the investigation into Davidson's death is still pending. Cuccia would not reveal what tests the examiner is conducting.

Davidson, a starter for Kennedy High this past season, collapsed and died at St. Mary's Rec Center on July 5, while competing in a basketball tournament. The gym had no air conditioning, and many of Davidson's family members suspect that heat played a role in his death.

Davidson's friends and family will gather at Nelson Park this Sunday at 1pm, to celebrate what would have been his 19th birthday.
