What could cause a ten year old to die in his sleep??

My boyfriends ten year old brother died in his sleep and noone knows why. I was wondering if anyone had a similar incident or some sort of answer.

Did they not do an autopsy? That flu has done that to a couple kids this year, they were feeling out of sorts and died shortly after, one in his sleep. Sounds to me like that but I don't know the whole story. So sorry to hear of young ones leaving too soon.

I have heard of people dying in their sleep from ruptured aneurisms...it breaks my heart to hear this.

When I was a kid there was an 8 year old boy who died in his sleep from a ruptured bowel, I believe. Also, my aunt's sister died as a child from an undiagnosed heart problem. And there was a 9 year old girl who died within 12 hours of becoming ill (turned out she had invasive strep). All were tragically sad situations.
