Tragedy at University of Idaho


A University of Idaho student, celebrating his 21st birthday, apparently drank himself to death, according to police in Moscow. Benjamin Harris of Burley may have consumed as many as 15 shots in two-and-a-half hours, according to Moscow assistant police chief David Duke.

Harris was found by friends at his fraternity house early this (Tuesday) morning. A preliminary investigation indicated that Harris' death was a result of respiratory arrest caused by alcohol poisoning.

He was DOA at Gritman Medical Center in Moscow.
