QUINCY, Wash. (AP) - An autopsy is scheduled Monday on a man who may have died of a drug overdose at a weekend music festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in central Washington.
    
Chelan County Coroner Wayne Harris says a 21-year-old man from the Seattle suburb of Des Moines died Sunday at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee. His name was not released.
    
He had been at the Paradiso Festival, a sold-out two-day electronic music festival at the 20,000-person venue overlooking the Columbia River, about 120 miles east of Seattle.

In addition to the Wenatchee hospital, Quincy Valley Medical Center in Quincy reported it had more than 100 overdose patients.
