Alcohol and drugs contributed to the drowning of an Oswego woman this summer at the Sybaris in Frankfort, the Will County coroner’s office said.

Suzette O’Donnell, 53, was found dead in a pool in her private suite on July 29 by a relative.

The cause of death was drowning, but her blood alcohol content was .228 and there was a significant level of the prescription anti-depressant drug Xanax in her system as well, Chief Deputy Coroner Bob Brenczewski said.

The amount of drugs and alcohol would have been enough to cause her death, he said.

The Sybaris, which bills itself as a romantic getaway with private pools and whirlpools, is at 7500 W. Lincoln Highway.
