"To squash recent rumors, there was not a homicide at Laing Lake over the weekend," Alliance Police Chief Philip Lukens said. "Two juveniles in separate locations were found to have overdosed on alcohol and were transported to the hospital."

Lukens said charges are being processed for the responsible party involved. 

"A separate individual was found deceased at a residence," Lukens said. "It is unrelated and currently under investigation. All preliminary investigations, including a recent autopsy, indicate the subject fell from a balcony. Alcohol is believed to have been a factor. Again, this case remains under investigation."
