2 Teens Found Dead In Apartment With Empty Can of Four Loko

HUNTINGTON BEACH (KTLA) -- Alcohol and drugs are being blamed in the deaths of two teenagers found dead inside a vacant apartment in Huntington Beach.

15-year old Aaron Saenz, of Westminster and 16-year-old Chelsea Taylor, of Huntington Beach were discovered Friday morning at an apartment on Huntington Village Lane.

Police found an empty can of Four Loko -- a sweet flavored, caffeine-alcohol drink -- in the apartment.

Police say there were other indications of possible drug and/or alcohol use inside the apartment as well.

An autopsy was completed Monday but the coroner's office has not released an official cause of death because the investigation is ongoing.

However, police believe the teens died of an accidental overdose from alcohol and/or drugs.
Four Loko is a controversial malt liquor nicknamed "Blackout in a Can" which is popular among college-age drinkers.

It's banned in several states due to health warnings but it remains legal in California.

  • So they find one can of four loco and blame that on the deaths, what bullshit. They never released the results of the autopsy, for all they know they snorted some bad coke. They banned these drinks where I live for the "safety" of the people, I guess citizens don't know what's best for them but the government does.

  • One can of malt liquor split between two teens isn't going to kill them even if they have been popping pills. Wait on the tox report and see what else they were taking.

  • So Buying energy drinks is legal, buying alcohol (if you're over 21) is legal. Serving alcohol and energy drinks together (VodkaRedbull) is legal, but selling an energy drink with alcohol is illegal... does not compute. I think FourLoko just didn't grease the right wheels.

  • Moronic Morons! Don't blame the substance, but instead blame these Moronic Morons!

    • What do you have against PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY? It has always been a main stay in our Republic and we have for too long drifted away from that principle. Hence our current situation Z.

    • He will not be able to...For Conservatism cannot exist without it.

      LIBERALS - believe in government action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all. It is the duty of the government to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual and human rights. Believe the role of the government should be to guarantee that no one is in need.

      Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for the government to solve problems.


      CONSERVATIVES - believe in personal resp More..

  • one malt liquor is not going to kill anyone, the kids probably read some sort of drug extraction recipe on the internet and probably ended up drinking a bottle of heet or something from not understanding the directions.

  • I've drank tons of these and i'm still alive. They removed the caffeine and wormwood and all the other stuff but continue to sell it here in Oregon. Nothing like getting drunk for $5.

  • Drank these like water couple years ago when they were good. Fastest and cheapest way to get a buzz going. Started to hurt my chest when I would drink them in under a minute. Now they're not that great.
