Nicholas Turner: Missouri college football player found dead in home

Nicholas Turner, a Northwest Missouri State football player has died in his dorm room, cutting short an event to celebrate the school’s fifth NCAA Division II championship.

Nicholas Turner, a junior, was discovered dead in his residence on campus, according to a news release from the school.

The Nodaway County coroner’s office, Maryville Public Safety and University police are conducting an investigation. No foul play is suspected.

Turner finished the 2015 season with 22 tackles, and recorded a sack in the Dec. 19 national title win over Shepherd.

Turner was from St. Louis and was majoring in corporate recreation and wellness.
