An autopsy recently revealed that 19-year-old Elizabeth Grace Burton died from a brain injury caused by cardiac arrest following the ingestion of a toxic combination of cocaine and alcohol. A private autopsy also detected the presence offentanyl and Gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) in Burton’s system. GHB is a depressant known for its euphoric and calming effects.

On March 9, 2023, Burton went to a party at a student’s dorm room at Duke University, before she was found unconscious after after the cocaine laced with fentanyl overdose.

When the first responders arrived, they immediately initiated resuscitation efforts and Burton was quickly transported to the hospital. She was treated in the ICU but officials said two days later, the college freshman died.

No one has been charged with Burton’s death. But Burton’s companion that night, former Duke student Patrick Rowland, has pleaded guilty to using a cell phone to facilitate the distribution of cocaine and marijuana. He will be sentenced in December.

Rowland could face a civil suit from Burton’s family. He is no longer at Duke.
