LANGLEY (NEWS 1130) – An initial autopsy on the Langley teen who died of a suspected overdose near a skate park last week has apparently come back showing no obvious cause of death.

The Langley Advance Times reports┬áCarson Crimeni’s family received that information on Wednesday.

A blood toxicology test that will take several weeks to yield results could provide more information.

The 14-year-old’s father told the Advance Times he believes testing will eventually confirm the fact his son died of an overdose.

Carson was pronounced dead after being found in severe medical distress in Langley’s Walnut Grove Park.

There have been no arrests since the boy’s death on Aug. 7. An online petition demanding accountability and justice launched in the week following the incident has gathered thousands of signatures.

In a widely-circulated video, a few teens can be seen taunting and laughing at Carson as his condition appears to deteriorate. The petition is aimed at those people.

Meantime, there has been an outpouring of global support for the heartbroken family. Donations have been coming in to help the Crimeni family from around the world through a GoFundMe campaign, which has raised tens of thousands of dollars so far, and surpassed the initial goal of $20,000.
