LEWIS AUTOPSY REVIEW RULES OUT COCAINE AS CAUSE OF DEATH

     After a review of the autopsy of Celtics star REGGIE LEWIS,
MA State Public Safety Secretary KATHLEEN O'TOOLE reiterated that
Lewis died from heart failure and not cocaine abuse.  She
announced the autopsy was thorough and free of outside pressure
(WASHINGTON POST, 3/29).  Lewis' wife, DONNA HARRIS-LEWIS, was
interview on ABC's "Good Morning America."  Asked why she
wouldn't authorize the release of her husbands autopsy report,
Harris-Lewis: "Why release it to the media? ... When the right
times comes I might release it to the medical community" (ABC,
3/29)
