A teenage girl who had been researching alcoholic drink recipes online has died in a Sydney hospital days after she was found in a “terrible state” with a lethal amount of alcohol in her system.
Paris Kamper, 15, was found unconscious at a semi-rural property in Kenthurst, in Sydney’s northwest, on Friday night.
She died on Monday after clinging to life for nearly three days.
Early investigations show the young girl had consumed large amounts of alcohol and some other items which “led directly or indirectly to her death,” Superintendent Rob Critchlow told reporters on Tuesday.
Energy drinks were also found at the home, police said.
“No matter what she consumed, she drank a huge amount of alcohol,” Supt Critchlow said.
“Drinking large amounts of alcohol no matter how much you dress it up is very dangerous, especially if you have no experience.”
