Teen Found Dead After “Night of Drinking”

by The Editors on June 24, 2009

According to a story on San Diego 6, a 16-year-old boy was found dead at about 9 AM Tuesday June 23, 2009 at his friends home in the 7300 block of Sitio Lima, in Carlsbad. The North County Times says it was reportedly after a “night of drinking.”

The teen was found unconscious and not breathing . . . Medics pronounced the youth dead at the scene. His name was withheld pending notification of his family. . . Authorities said the boys had apparently been playing drinking games with tequila, vodka and whiskey before falling asleep. When the other three woke up about 9 a.m. Tuesday, Scott wasn’t breathing.

Carlsbad police Lt. Jay Eppel says there was “no evidence that the teenager’s death was a homicide.” Carlsbad Fire Battalion Chief Ed Sprague said there were no adults in the home when medics arrived.

[Update: The San Diego Union-Tribune says the teen’s name is Scott Eugene Roberts of Carlsbad. “A viewing is scheduled tonight at Oceanside Mortuary and the funeral is scheduled for tomorrow at 1 p.m. at the Meadowlark Community Church in San Marcos.”]
