FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ - Authorities say an 18-year-old male was found dead at the bottom of a swimming pool Saturday morning after a party in Fountain Hills.
According to spokesman Chris Hegstrom with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, the party involved underage drinking, and drug paraphernalia was also found at the home near McDowell Mountain Road and El Pueblo Boulevard.
It’s being considered a “suspicious death,” and the person found dead was identified as 18-year-old Alec Matthew Groux, said Hegstrom.
Groux was found unattended in the pool around 10:30 a.m.
Hegstrom clarified Saturday night that the teen was renting a room at the house.
