The picture doesnt look much like a 14 yr old. Hate to say it but she looks pretty rough for someone so young. What was she doing at a party till 2am? Middle school? This girl was on her own way more then someone should be at her age. Sad.

Kid's 14 years old & out til 2 am?? And the mother doesn't check on her til 6 am??  Parents didn't pick her up from the party??  Did they even wait up for her?  Too bad because if the parents had at the least been waiting up for her they might have noticed something was wrong in time to get the kid to a hospital

Why was a 14 year old out at 2am???   Along with whoever provided the alcohol,  The parents are responsible for allowing a 14 year old to be out at that time a night.   Failure as parents.

The cops "wonder" who gave the girl alcohol???  They should be ARRESTING her "parents" for allowing her to be out till 2 a.m. in the first place!!!!!

Ask any kid, it is not hard to find alcohol. They can get it so many ways.

If she had been given marijuana instead, she would still be alive.

If you REALLY read the article, you will see that it states she also HAD marijuana in her system.  So OBVIOUSLY it didn't keep her "alive."

The oxygen she was breathing also "didn't keep her 'alive'"..... And if you had a thought process with a basis in fact, you would know that it wasn't the marijuana that killed her.

I'm sure the marijuana didn't help to improve her judgement either.

I think you missed the point that she was smoking pot and drinking. She was only 14, this was not her first rodeo.

Not a flattering picture of the tragically deceased.

Looks like a promo shot for Paranormal Activity III.

RIP young lady.. Condolences to her family - nobody knows wether the family allowed her to stay out so don't be so quick to pass judgement.  Time will tell what happened - I'm sure this family is feeling alot of pain.  Very sad.

it is a terrible tragedy.  And I feel horrible for her family.  But key points are 14 years old.....at a party........home at 2 am.  I'm only 39 and wasn't allowed out - by my parents - that late until after I graduated Highschool!  I'm not sure when teens and preteens started to be treated at adults with "rights" and parents lost authority, but its becoming scary.  No wonder kids abuse teachers and rule classrooms....kids have lost respect and fear.

I would have been out searching the streets for my daughter if it were 2am and she wasnt home and I am talking about high school not middle school.

My 13 y.o. middle school daughter wouldn't even think about staying out that late. She stays busy w/swim team, yearbook, good grades, church, family and girlfriends. No need to live (or die) like you are 30 when you are only in 8th grade. The rest will come soon enough.

Oh please! People jump at any opportunity to toot their own horn. This very well could have been your daughter so you should really be careful with your judgements. In school, my wildest friends were from a "church" family. "The rest will come soon enough." GAG

tnpitmom, we must be from different generations and I'm not even that old (in my own mind).  I wasn't even allowed to date until I was 16 and never would have even THOUGHT about staying out later than 9 p.m. when I was only 14.  Face my father at 2 a.m.?  I don't think so!

I set the same standards for my own son...who now has a daughter that is 13 and he's the same way I was with him.  I really hope that Family Services is looking into these "parents".

Oh how terrible ! When I was 14 my deadline was 10pm come hell or high water. and that on date nites. The five other nites the deadline was before the start of sundown. If I was invited to eat dinner at a girlfriend's, I had to call home first. I saw it as normal. What the hell is wrong with so-called Parents?

And that is why you are still alive and well.
