WSU prof had history of seizures

PULLMAN (AP) — An autopsy shows that a seizure was ultimately to blame for the death of a Washington State University professor.

Scott Stratton was found dead in a pond at Sunnyside Park in Pullman last week.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News says Stratton had a history of seizures.

Whitman County Coroner Pete Martin says Stratton, 51,  had been off his medication for about 10 days at the time of his death, because the medication was causing a rash.

Martin says the cause of death was drowning.
