Alyssa Byrne, 19, of Petaluma, died of “probably hypothermia due to prolonged environmental exposure,” a press release from the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office stated. Byrne was also suffering from methamphetamine toxicity and had ingested multiple psychoactive drugs.
South Lake Tahoe Public Utility District workers found Byrne’s body on Jan. 4 a short distance from Pioneer Trail, about a half mile from the location of the music festival.
