The Whitehorse teen found dead on a Kopper King lawn in November had a blood-alcohol level consistent with “moderate intoxication,” according to the Yukon’s chief coroner, Kirsten Macdonald.

Fifteen-year-old Tora-Lee Williams was found dead outside a Kopper King trailer park the morning after a Halloween party with friends.

Toxicology tests showed that Williams had a blood alcohol content of between 0.12 and 0.15 per cent, Macdonald said.

“There we also no other drugs detected in her system. We’ve ruled out any other drugs present,” Macdonald said.

The final autopsy report has yet to be released. Macdonald said it’s still too early to determine a cause of death, but that the report is expected in the next few weeks.

Police have said no foul play is suspected in Williams’s death.
