An autopsy has found that a young Bloomington boy who died last week did not have meningitis. The Herald-Times is reporting the Monroe County Health Department is working with the Indiana Department of Health to find the cause of the five-year-old’s death. Bacterial meningitis is an inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. It can be fatal without proper medical treatment.

Starting today, the Indiana Department of Transportation will be working on a portion of I-69 in Monroe County.

The project is expected to take up to 45 days if there aren’t any weather delays.
