Orono Teen Died Of Combination Of Acute Intoxication And Exposure
The State Medical Examiner says an Orono teen's death was a combination of drugs, alcohol, and hypothermia.
WABI-TV reports 19-year-old Alexie Adams had cocaine and ethanol in her system when she passed away three weeks ago. Officials say hypothermia was a contributing factor and so her death has been ruled accidental.
Adams body was found in a snowbank along Colburn Drive in Orono earlier this month. She spent the evening visiting with a group of friends, and traveling from location to location, but had mostly likely become separated from them just before she died.
The investigation continues with Orono and State Police.
