Linzy Duvall's family struggles with Grand Valley student's alcohol-related death

Posted by John Tunison | The Grand Rapids Press April 28, 2009 21:38PM          Top of  page              Article

Reported that Linzy Duvall's father Mike Duvall struggles to comprehend the circumstances behind how his daughter died. Her father knew her as a "responsible woman" who resisted partying and drinking in the past. The toxicology results revealed that Linzy breathed in vomit, causing fluid to accumulate in her lungs and "aspirated pneumonia."  The medical examiner could not readily pinpoint Linzy's alcohol content at her death, but showed it may have been near 0.12 some hours earlier.
