SEATTLE (AP) - The Chelan County coroner has identified a 21-year-old suburban Seattle man who died after a weekend music festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in central Washington.
Coroner Wayne Harris said Monday that an autopsy found no physical injuries or pre-existing medical conditions that would have caused the death of Patrick Witkowski of Des Moines, Wash. The coroner said Witkowski was a Washington State University student.
Harris said toxicology tests of blood and urine, with results expected in about eight weeks, should pinpoint a cause of death.
Authorities said dozens of people were treated after overdosing on a drug called Molly at the two-day Paradiso Festival, which featured dozens of electronic music performances. More than 25,000 people attended the event.
Witkowski died Sunday at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee. He was one of seven people from the festival who were taken to that hospital.
A hospital spokeswoman says three remain in serious condition.
