There's an update on the death of a Parris Island Marine recruit. A Parris Island spokesperson says 18-year-old Bret Moran died in his sleep of natural causes.

According to the autopsy, Moran suffered from a microscopic infection that moved to his heart. That's after being diagnosed and treated for pneumonia the month before.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Services report shows there was no evidence of any wrongdoing.
