It could have been dehydration or heat stroke. It is very hot. Yes, there are a lot of drugs at Bonnaroo, but there are many who go who do not do drugs. It really is kind of heartless to make public comments like that when a life has been lost. That can be your opinion, but the "golden rule" really should apply here.

It's just as likely, if not more likely, that she died from heat exhaustion and extreme dehydration. It's a relatively small amount of people who attend 'roo who have narcotics.I know that there are church groups and college ministries who go there simply to keep a stock of ice, water, and some food so that while people are there, they can go somewhere to keep from these two symptoms. However, if people go there without knowing, and they rely on their own supply, they could easily run out.

It's just shallow to assume that because she was at bonoroo, the woman overdosed or drugged herself. The main cause of 'roo deaths is heat and dehydration.

It's just what I'd expect of the typical chattanoogan to be so neglecting and degrading to someone beyond himself/herself. I've left the city. Thanks for giving me another reason never to go back.
