2 Boys, 11, Found Dead From Alcohol Poisoning

March 03, 2004|From Times Wire Reports

Two 11-year-old boys whose bodies were found in a snowy field on the Flathead Indian Reservation died after consuming massive amounts of liquor, Lake County Sheriff Bill Barron said.

The bodies of Frankie Sonneah Nicolai and Justin Benoist, both of Ronan, were discovered in a field Monday by a friend. Barron said it appeared that both died late Friday or early Saturday, but that they had not been reported missing all weekend.

Barron said Frankie, who had a blood-alcohol level of 0.50% -- more than six times the legal threshold for drunken driving -- died of alcohol poisoning.
