ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler pronounced a student from an Alabama college dead just before 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
Fowler says 19-year-old Albert Luke from Birmingham, Alabama was found in his hotel room at the Parks Inn by Radisson in Albany.
Luke was a basketball player at the University of Montevallo in Alabama who played in a game against Albany State University Friday night.
Fowler initially thought the death was naturally caused, as Luke had pre-existing medical conditions.
After an autopsy Monday morning, Fowler said Luke had an enlarged heart.
