Ethan Day, 20, of LaPorte, and a 17-year-old LaPorte girl were found dead in a home in the 500 block of East Lincolnway Tuesday evening, June 4, 2013.
It’s possible that drug overdoses were the cause.
“At this point in time, the causes of these deaths and the circumstances surrounding these deaths are still under investigation by the LaPorte County Coroner’s Office and the LaPorte Police Department’s Detective Bureau,” according to a LaPorte Police press release. “The second victim’s name is not being released due to the fact that she was less than 18 years old. There is no additional information to report at this point. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to believe that there is any ongoing danger to the public as a whole.”
LaPorte Police, the LaPorte Fire Department and LaPorte County EMS were dispatched to the home at 6:41 p.m. The victims had been discovered by Day’s father, who then immediately called emergency services. The LaPorte County coroner also responded.
