NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) - The mother of an Ohio college student who was found unresponsive in his dorm and later died says a severe milk allergy was to blame.

The obituary for 20-year-old Logan Lewis states that Hocking College police found Lewis unresponsive in a dormitory on Thursday before he was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital due to anaphylaxis from a severe allergy.

The victim's mother, Jamie Baker, writes in a Facebook post that she believes her son died of a severe allergy to milk.

Tim Brunicardi, a spokesman for Hocking College, says Lewis' death is under investigation and no foul play is suspected.
