CLARK COUNTY, Wash. - A 12-year-old boy was found dead in his bed, and now authorities are trying to figure out what happened.
According to police, Cordel Tubbs, a sixth grader at Jefferson Middle School in Vancouver, died sometime after he went to bed Saturday night. He was found Father's Day morning unresponsive in his bed.
His family members said he seemed to be in good spirits and in good health when he went to sleep.
There was no obvious cause of death, and a spokesman for the Clark County Sheriff's Office said it could take weeks before autopsy results are returned.
Grief counselors were expected to be at the boy's school for the rest of the week to help students cope with the death. Friends described Tubbs as funny and a kid who liked to joke around, play the "Halo 3" video game and skate.
