    WA - Mass Overdose At Central Washington University Party

    ROSLYN, Wash. -- More than 50 Central Washington University students and other teenagers were involved in multiple drug and alcohol overdoses at a party in Roslyn late Friday night, the Cle Elum Police Department reported.

    Shortly after 11 p.m. Friday, Cle Elum- Roslyn South Cle Elum police responded to a report of an assault and possible poisoning / overdose. The victim was transported to Kittitas Valley Community Hospital.

    Friends of the victim provided information to police and led officers and Kittitas County deputies to a home in Roslyn.

    When officers arrived at the residence, they interrupted a possible sexual assault in progress and located several people in critical condition due to overdosing on an unknown substance

    New information.
    "None of the underage people who overdosed meant to get high or unconscious, said Ferguson, and none had more than one or two drinks, KOMO reported. Rather, he said, they appear to be victims of a scheme to render them unconscious and unable to resist or defend themselves."

    I wish this thread was in Crimes in the News. This is just awful. and why did LE release the guy that was having sex with a semi-conscious girl? Please God, get to the bottom of this and hold those responsible to severe consequences.

    Police found no drugs at the home after a four-hour search, and investigators are still looking into what substance may have sickened the 12 and who may have been responsible.
    n the basement, some of those who were sober had tried to help others by putting them on beds, couches or mattresses."However, not one person chose to call 911," Cle Elum Police Chief Scott Ferguson said.
    Student Lindsay Garske told KCPQ-TV of Seattle that "girls were basically unconscious everywhere, all over the house and outside, and it was a very bad scene."
    When officers arrived, many partygoers fled. Some crawled into the bathtub and covered themselves with plywood, others crawled into the attic and hid in insulation, Moore said.
    "It was chaos," he said.

    So, looks like only girls were targeted and everyone else knew it -- that's why they got rid of the drugs, didn't call 911 and tried to hide when LE got there.

    scary carp! Intentional mass dosing? This could have ended so much more tragically. Thank the heavens that the party was broken up and the kids gotten out of there. I wonder how many girls may have been raped that won't even remeber it?!?

    Just frightening.

    It was reported the girl was his girlfriend and over 18 so presumably she told the authorities the sex was consensual. It boggles my mind that not one of them inside the house called 911.
    It certainly appears to me that if police did not get there when it did this could have ended up a lot worse.

    An investigation has determined that a high-alcohol caffeinated drink, not date-rape drugs, sickened Central Washington University students at an off-campus party earlier this month.
    Students at the party had blood-alcohol levels that ranged from 0.12 percent to 0.35 percent after consuming cans of the drink called Four Loko, CWU President James L. Gaudino said at a news conference Monday. Other students mixed the drink with additional alcohol, he said.
    http://www.businessweek.com/ap/finan.../D9J2T49O0.htm

    The article goes on to say that one can of Four Loko is equal in alcohol to 5-6 beers and that this isn't the first time that college students have been hospitalized after drinking it at a party.

    I guess it's good to know there isn't a madman on the loose spiking drinks with GHB without permission, and they got themselves drunk all on their own.

    Turns out no one was targeted. They voluntarily drunk an alcohol energy drink and became intoxicated. I presume since women are generally smaller than men the same amount of alcohol would affect women more than it did males.

    What a crazy story? It starts out 50 people overdose and ends up couldn't handle their booze. I'm sure they all paid with a headache and some visits to the toilet.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    Apparently this one drink has a lot of alcohol and it also has caffeine. Some of these students had so much blood alcohol that level could be lethal, so it could have ended a lot worse if police did not show up.
    "The problem is when you put all these things together, it's a nightmare," Harris Stratyner, vice president of the Caron Center and an addiction specialist, told "Good Morning America" today. "The caffeine may make you feel like you're not getting drunk as quickly so you may ingest more."

    How can that be legal? You drink one and then you get stopped and you're asked how much had you had to drink, and you blood level is double?? I think these people had more than just one. I have seen many people drink four or five drinks and then drink and couple cups of coffee and never reacted like that.
