Medical examiner posts autopsy results on UH football player

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:20 a.m. HST, Jan 10, 2014

The Medical Examiner's Office has classified the death of University of Hawaii football player Jack Willis Wilson III as accidental due to drowning.

Wilson's body was recovered in waters off Sandy Beach Nov. 30 after he was reported missing at 4:30 a.m. His body was found at around 8 a.m.

Wilson, 21, was among a group of three men and two women who were wading in shallow water when his friends noticed him missing.

Wilson was born in Pearl City and raised in Washington state. He was a walk-on running back at the University of Washington for three years before transferring to UH this past summer.

So did, or did not, the ME make any statement regarding BAC or other toxicology screen results? The whole scenario gives the public reason to wonder. If it's a public story, dig some more and get the relevant details into it.

My brother and I were walking in town the other day and when I looked back I did not see him anymore. Would I worry? No because he's old enough to get around in town and no one needs to tell everyone where they are 24/7 unless one's name is Barack Obama. So in this case, we are left to wonder, if the situation was accidental, then how could a young man just fade into the water? Currents are very strong at Sandy Beach, so inexperienced water goers need to watch themselves. It makes us wonder though how could a fit young athlete simply drown, when he had all of his life to look forward to. It's dark at 4:30am so we wonder what they were doing out there.

Maybe he never learned to swim. It's been classified as drowning, anything else is no ones business except his next of kin.

I wonder also, wasn't there a game that evening? Doesn't the "coach" have a curfew?
