Results from testing to determine if swine flu was a contributing factor in the Thursday morning death of a ninth-grade Warren Central High School student were still not available Saturday from the Mississippi State Department of Health, said Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey.

Huskey had initially thought results would be in Friday or Saturday, but said he now expects them on Monday.

Wesley Husband, 15, 35 Round Alley, died in a waiting room at The Street Clinic around 9:30 a.m. He had begun feeling ill six days earlier, said family members.
