A popular University of Arkansas football player has been found dead in his dorm room. Garrett Uekman was discovered by his roommate on Sunday morning, just an hour after he was observed to be playing video games.

The death of Garrett Uekman is so far unexplained. He reportedly had no known pre-existing medical problems, yet he was in cardiac arrest when medical personnel got to him. He died a short time later after he had been rushed to a nearby hospital.
