The father of a former Ohio University football player who died last week said Sunday his son’s death resulted from a blood clot in his lung.
Marcellis Williamson, 23, died Wednesday night at Euclid Hospital in Euclid, Ohio. Following a Thursday autopsy, a Cuyahoga County Coroner’s Office spokesperson said a full toxicology report would be completed before determining the cause of Williamson’s death.
But Williamson’s father, Brian Perkins, said Sunday afternoon that the cause of death was a blood clot in the lung. Perkins said the coroner’s office had run a toxicology screening, which came back negative.
The family has planned a wake and funeral service Saturday at Watson’s Funeral Home, located at 10193 Superior Ave. in Cleveland.
