15-year-old dies in sleepover at home in northern New Mexico

News

LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) – Authorities say a 15-year-old Los Alamos student has died after a sleepover at a house in northern New Mexico.

The Los Alamos Monitor reports that Arleigh Huff was flown to an Albuquerque hospital on Aug. 28 from the home in the Jemez Mountain area after experiencing what authorities have said was a “medical incident.”

Authorities declined to disclose the cause of death. Some youths brought liquor to the sleepover.

Lt. Allen Mills, investigations supervisor for the sheriff’s department, says it will be probably a month or so before authorities can determine exactly what happened. Toxicology results are pending.

Mills says no charges have been filed and probably never will be filed, because only juveniles were at the party where he said alcohol was being served.
