(WEST LAFAYETTE, IN) - The Tippecanoe County Health Department says the meningitis death of a Purdue University student poses no immediate threat to the community.

A department official confirms that a male student died last week of non-infectious meningitis.

Purdue Women's Basketball Player Drey Mingo was diagnosed last November and another student was hospitalized with bacterial meningitis in September 2009.
