A 15 year old girl died suddenly this weekend and her death is being investigated by the Acadia Sheriff's Office. Here's what we know: An ambulance was dispatched to the boat launch area underneath the bridge in Mermentau. The young victim was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later. At this point the victim's name is not being released, but Sheriff Wayne Melancon of Acadia Parish tells us teen drinking was likely a factor. An autopsy will determine the cause of death.
