Teen's death after prom linked to alcohol, prescription drug mix

Publish date:

A toxic mix of alcohol and a prescription medication led to the death of a Minnesota teenager hours after she attended her senior prom.

Anna Jaskulka, 18, died from "mixed drug toxicity," the Maplewood Police Department says. Officials did not list the prescription medication that was in her system when she died.

Jaskulka, a senior at North High School, was found unresponsive on May 21. Media reports after her death said her parents had seen her 15 minutes before they found her, and when police arrived at her Maplewood home just after 11 p.m., Juskulka was in full cardiac arrest.

She was pronounced dead at a local hospital, and school officials had told BringMeTheNews investigators were looking into whether alcohol or other substances played a role in her death.

Police said Wednesday her death remains under investigation. BringMeTheNews has reached out to the Maplewood Police Department for more information on the status of the investigation.

Jaskulka was described as having a "bright personality and kind heart."
