We remember artist William Christenberry who died Monday at the age of 80. Much of his art was about the rural south and the passage of time and its effect on artifacts and landscapes.
Tucson Student Who Fell To His Death Was Intoxicated
A University of Arizona student from California who fell to his death from a rooftop tower was drunk at the time, according to an autopsy report.
The Pima County Medical Examiner’s Office says in addition to being intoxicated, there was evidence 19-year-old Michael Anderson, of Mission Viejo, Calif., had smoked marijuana, though it is unclear when.
The autopsy showed the student, who climbed about halfway up a 20-foot ventilation tower atop a three-story residence hall, had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit for drivers of 0.08. His death was ruled accidental.
Anderson died just days after an 18-year-old Arizona State student who had attended a party sponsored by a banned fraternity, fell from a 10th story balcony in Tempe. Naomi McClendon, 18, a Kansas native, is believed to have been intoxicated at the time of her death.
