Alcohol is suspected as the likely cause of death for a Farmington man, who was to return to St. Cloud State for classes in the spring.
Reported in part:
"It has happened yet again.
After a night of partying and drinking games, Brian W. Threet was found dead on Saturday in the bedroom of his St. Cloud apartment, police said.
The two started drinking about 10:30 p.m. Friday as they played a popular drinking game called Beer Pong, Quintero said. About 11:30 p.m., Threet left for another party, having consumed what Quintero called a moderate amount of beer. "He wasn't stumbling around," he said. "It was a relatively quiet night." At 2 a.m. Saturday, Threet went to another party, Quintero said. Threet's friends at the last party guessed he stopped drinking about an hour later, he said."
