Family of late Pace student blames military for death
The family of a Pace University student who died in his dorm room earlier this week is pointing the blame for his death at the military.
Police say Luke Arneson, 25, died Wednesday night after he apparently suffered a series of seizures. They say he was found dead by a fellow student.
His aunt says he never experienced a seizure before this summer, when he returned home from his second tour of duty in Iraq. "It could be an environmental contaminant from being in Iraq," his aunt says. "We don't know."
Arneson joined the military right after graduating from Monroe-Woodbury High School in 2003.
