BELLINGHAM -- Investigators believe alcohol was a cause in the death of a 14-year-old Bellingham girl.
Police think she had been drinking at a party Friday night. She came home at 2 a.m. Saturday and went to bed. Her mother went to check on her at 6 a.m. and found her unresponsive. Medics could not revive her.
The Bellingham Herald reported she was identified as Hazel Christine Phair.
Medical Examiner Gary Goldfogel said the autopsy suggests she could not breathe because of drinking too much alcohol. Toxicology tests are pending.
Phair was a student at Whatcom Middle School.
