A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of a 16-year-old Puyallup girl.
The medical examiner said Danielle Dawn McCarthy died from an acute Ecstasy intoxication at a New Year's Eve party in Edmonds on Jan. 1.
Friends brought McCarthy to Steven's Hospital in Edmonds early New Year's Day after finding her unconscious.
According to a police press release, Edmonds police detectives located and interviewed nearly everyone who was with or near McCarthy the night of her death.
Detectives arrested a Puyallup man accused of providing McCarthy with Ecstasy.
The man was booked into the King County Regional Justice Center on the charges of controlled substance homicide, but it was decided that charges would be pursued through the Snohomish County prosecutor's office. The man has since been transferred to the Snohomish County Jail, where he is due in court Friday.
The girl's father, Patrick McCarthy, said his daughter was against drugs and even tried to get him to stop smoking.
"I would trade everything in my life to have her back, but if I can't, I need to get the message out. These kids seem to think they are invincible, that Ecstasy is a safe party drug. It's not. Even one time can kill you," said Patrick.
The Puyallup father said that others should come forward in the case, and said that at least a half dozen young people watched his daughter go into a seizure and die.
Police said they have not ruled out other arrests in the case.
