Autopsy for Vernon Hills’ 15-year-old Delayed

The girl's suspicious death is still under investigation


The suspicious death Saturday of a 15-year-old Vernon Hills girl is still under investigation, police said. An autopsy for the teen will be delayed until Tuesday because of the Columbus Day holiday.

Police and paramedics found the girl "unresponsive" Saturday morning at her Vernon Hills home, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The girl was pronounced dead at 11:39 a.m. Saturday at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. Officials have yet to release a preliminary cause of death and hope the autopsy will help determine what happened.

Officials have not released the girl's name until the cause of death is determined.
