2 arrested St. Paul teen girl's deathby Tim Nelson, Minnesota Public Radio
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Two men have been arrested by St. Paul police in connection with the possible drug overdose death of a 14-year-old girl.
Police say they were called to a home near the State Capitol on Monday morning and found the girl dead in her bed. Police found that a friend of the girl, a 17-year-old, had gone to nearby Regions Hospital for treatment of a potential overdose.
Investigators found the girls had been taken to a party in Burnsville, where they were given alcohol, marijuana and a drink believed to contain codeine. Investigators say the girls were taken home, where they fell ill and went to bed.
Police have arrested two men on 3rd degree murder charges. That's the charge in state statute for certain drug-related deaths. They haven't yet been formally charged by the Ramsey County attorney.
