LAS VEGAS — Police and family members of an Arizona woman say the 22-
year-old pre-med student fell to her death from her Las Vegas Strip hotel
room after taking Ecstasy.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Emily McCaughan died early
Monday after falling from the 27th floor at the Circus Circus hotel to a roof on
the third floor.
Family spokeswoman Mignonne Walstad says McCaughan panicked after
taking the drug and went back to the hotel without her friends.
The Review-Journal says a Clark County medical examiner confirmed
McCaughan’s death on Friday but hadn’t announced an official cause of death.
Police on Saturday were still investigating the circumstances of her fall.
McCaughan was a student at the University of Arizona. Her family held a
memorial service for her in Scottsdale on Saturday.
