Teenager Girl Dies At Local High School After Overdosing On Drugs

The Los Angeles Police Department and media reports indicate that one girl died and two others were hospitalized Wednesday due to drug overdoses.

Lt. John Radtke, LAPD investigator, reported Tuesday night that a 15-year-old girl had been found dead in the girls bathroom of Helen Bernstein High School in Hollywood. Radtke told Fox 11 that another girl and a teenage boy were also hospitalized. Radtke said all of them were drug overdose victims.

As Radtke reported, the teenagers purchased fentanyl-laced Percocet.

Death and overdose investigations are being conducted by LAPD detectives from the West Bureau’s Homicide Unit.

In an overdose investigation at around 9 p.m., LAPD Hollywood officers responded to the scene of a missing stepdaughter’s overdose. A parent told police his stepdaughter had been overdosing on drugs when she told her stepfather her friend was inside the girls’ bathroom.

Fox 11 reported that the couple bought Percocet (an opioid pain reliever), ingested a pill, and started feeling ill almost immediately.

In an attempt to revive the victim, paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department were called.

According to LAPD Officer Rosario Cervantes, the other 15-year-old girl was in stable condition when she was taken to the hospital.

There were two other overdoses at nearby Lexington Park Tuesday night, both involving Bernstein High School students or students attending other local high schools.

In the Lexington Park area, two other calls for overdoses were answered by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

According to Cervantes, the two cases may be related.

Family notification is pending before releasing the girl’s name.

In response to the events at Bernstein High School, LAUSD released a statement on Wednesday morning.

Our investigation is being led by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), and we are unable to share any further information at this point because of confidentiality concerns. We will, however, be open to all students and employees today. Grief counselors will be available to provide support.

We are praying for the families and friends of both students as we work together with LAPD to uncover details of this tragic incident. In addition, LAUSD expressed appreciation for everyone’s understanding and support today and said more information would be shared as it became available.
