University of Dayton center Chris Daniels died of an irregular heartbeat, a coroner ruled Tuesday. Montgomery County Coroner James Davis said the irregularity, or cardiac arrhythmia, caused Daniels' heart to quiver and fail to pump enough blood early on Feb. 8, when the 6-foot-10, 238-pound senior was stricken at his off-campus home. "It's a very uncommon occurrence among young individuals, but it does happen," said Ken Betz, director of the coroner's office.

It was a stunning admission; Sobell, now 91 years old, had adamantly maintained his innocence for more than half a century. After his comments were published, even the Rosenbergs' children, Robert and Michael Meeropol, were left with little hope to hang on to -- and this week, in comments unlike any they've made previously, the brothers acknowledged having reached the difficult conclusion that their father was, indeed, a spy. "I don't have any reason to doubt Morty," Michael Meeropol told Sam Roberts of the New York Times.
