SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) — Organizers of a popular outdoor Lake Tahoe music festival will stress safety at the event late this month after a participant's death last year.

Nineteen-year-old Alyssa Byrne of Petaluma, Calif., attended the 2012 SnowGlobe Music Festival in South Lake Tahoe, but never reached her hotel a few miles away in Stateline, Nev.

Her body was found a few days after she went missing New Year's Eve, and an autopsy found she likely died of hypothermia and had drugs in her system.

Authorities speculated she tried to walk to the hotel to avoid long shuttle bus lines and became disoriented.

Organizers told the Tahoe Daily Tribune this year's three-day festival will feature double the number of buses and extended hours for a heated tent for those waiting for rides.

Roger`s st0rry is inconceivable… last week I got a gorgeous Citroën 2CV from having made $8146 thiss month and in excess of ten/k last month. it’s by-far the most-financially rewarding I’ve ever done. I started this three months/ago and almost straight away began to bring in more than $82 per-hour. look at this site

That is a very strange headline. There must have been a better way to word it. There is no safety after death. Death is the ultimate unsafe event.
