She reportedly collapsed around 2 AM on Saturday and was transported to JFK Memorial Hospital in Indo and thereafter to Desert Regional Medical Center.
She died on Thursday at 2:30 PM. The sheriff’s office commented that this death was the first from Coachella Music Festival this year and that toxicology reports will take approximately a month to be completed and finalized.
