The Iowa State medical examiner is planning an autopsy Wednesday morning to determine the cause of death of former University of Iowa standout football player Tyler Sash.
The 27-year old was found dead at his home in Oskaloosa by a family member who stopped by to walk his dog.
Sash was a safety for the Hawkeyes, who became a first-team All Big Ten selection his junior year. He had 13 interceptions during his Iowa career, fifth best in school history.
He went on to play two years for the New York Giants, winning a Super Bowl with the team in 2011.
