Mississippi health officials are awaiting the results of autopsies on two students before declaring them the victims of swine flu.

Coroner Norma Stiglet says the death of a Hancock County Middle School student is under investigation.

Stiglet says the 13-year-old girl died Thursday. Stiglet didn't give the girl's name or release any other details.

In Warren County, an autopsy showed a 15-year-old Warren Central High School student did not die of bacterial meningitis.

County Coroner Doug Huskey says Wesley Husband died in a small waiting room detached from the main waiting area of a medical clinic.

He says the medical examiner believes she found pneumonia-like symptoms, but further tests are required to confirm that.
