Physicians are looking into three possible causes that led to the unexpected death of an Esko High School senior early Saturday morning, according to the student's mother.

Barbara Krzenski said her 18-year-old son, Jordan Tucker, may have died from an undiagnosed heart arrhythmia, a virus that affected his heart, or Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which causes electrical abnormalities in the heart.

"There's no definite conclusion, other than it was his heart," Krzenski said this morning.

About 300 students attended a candlelight vigil for Tucker on Wednesday night, and 600 people gathered for the visitation earlier that day, Krzenski said. Tucker's funeral was scheduled for this afternoon in Cloquet.
