Taylor Lavoie, 18, dies in 5-story fall from roof of Angry Bull Saloon in Hartford, Connecticut
Investigators believe the teen was drinking on the roof of the building before the fatal fall. Officials said she came with friends, also underage, using CT Fastrak and at some point the group was in the bar before the teen went onto the roof. It is unclear how many others were on the roof with her.
Police said Lavoie, who was drinking with friends at the bar at about 12:30 a.m. Friday, apparently made her way to the fourth-floor roof, and once there became disoriented in the dark and fell down a five-foot gap between buildings to the pavement below.
The bar as been under law enforcement scrutiny for some time, police said. Lavoie and her friends were there for the regular "Thirsty Thursday" special prices, including 25-cent beers and $1 shots of hard liquor. Hartford Police had filed three separate complaints with the city's Liquor Control Commission over the course of the last four months about underage drinking at the bar.
