AP corrects student death story

The Associated Press got the facts (or fact) wrong when reporting on Cornell University freshman, Matthew Pearlstone,19, who was found dead Friday, March 17 in UVA’s Cauthen residence hall. Here's the correction:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) _ In a March 23 story about the death of a Cornell University freshman visiting the University of Virginia, The Associated Press erroneously reported that an autopy found that he died of alcohol intoxication. The cause of death was determined by toxicology tests, according to Arkuie Williams, an administrator for the state medical examiner's office in Richmond.
