16-year-old California girl died from accidental overdose
WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) — A 16-year-old girl found unresponsive outside a Southern California apartment complex died from an accidental drug overdose, an autopsy determined.
Witnesses reported seeing a car pull up and two people carry Aleyah Toscano out, leaving her on the ground last September in Whittier.
She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The autopsy found the teen died from a mix of fentanyl and cocaine, KABC-TV reported Monday.
Her mother told the news station that her daughter had been living in protective custody after being the victim of a prior violent crime.
The mother said she believes someone lured the girl away from the home where she was staying.
