A post-mortem into the sudden death of a 25-year-old Co Armagh man in America has proven inconclusive.
Philip Hagan, from Tynan, was found unresponsive in his Philadelphia apartment on Saturday evening.
He was due to fly home this weekend for Christmas.
Philip’s death remains a mystery, his grieving father told the Belfast Telegraph.
Rector Rev Matthew Hagan said: “The Medical Examiners’ Office has told us that the post-mortem hasn’t shown what the cause of death has been.
“We are still awaiting tissue and blood samples, so that may change.
“Philip was fit and healthy, he liked his cricket and his rugby. What has happened was sudden.
“It is quite a relief that his body has been released to the undertaker. It just means that the process has started and the wheels are starting to turn and he will be back home.”
The former deputy head boy at The Royal School in Dungannon was described as an “absolute star” and “the kind of pupil you remember for all the right reasons” by its headmaster Dr David Burnett.
The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust are working on returning Philip to his home.
Philip leaves behind his father, Aghavilly, Tynan and Middletown Rector, Revd. Matthew Hagan, mother Jennifer, and brother Jonathan.
