Coroner: UC Irvine student died from alcohol poisoning
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP, KTVU) - An investigation has determined that a University of California, Irvine student found dead in a home near campus died from alcohol poisoning.
The Orange County sheriff's Coroner Division on Monday said 18-year-old Noah Domingo died Jan. 12 from "accidental acute ethanol intoxication."
Authorities said tests show Domingo had a blood alcohol level of 0.331.
Irvine police are investigating to determine whether any crimes contributed to Domingo's death.
The first year-student was found dead in a bed at a home near UC Irvine and a campus fraternity was suspended pending investigation.
911 calls revealed friends attempted to revive Domingo when he was found in the home the morning after the party.
Coroner's officials said that Domingo died about six hours before his body was discovered.
The teen was from the community of La Crescenta in Los Angeles County.
A spokesman for the school, Tom Vasich, said the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity later voted to suspend the Irvine group's charter and the campus group was disbanded.
