Hundreds of mourners came to the Leo P. Gallagher funeral home Monday night to pay their respects to the family of a 14-year-old Chickahominy girl who police said may have overdosed on over-the-counter medication...
....Police Chief David Ridberg said Daisy Pacheco may have overdosed on over-the-counter medication, although the case is under investigation and many questions remain.
"We're investigating the possibility of a drug overdose," he said. "The motivation for a drug overdose is not clear, the circumstances surrounding an overdose is not very clear."
Diego Pacheco, Daisy's brother, said Monday that his family was not ready to comment on what happened....
....Daisy was known as a happy teenager who was very outgoing, which was one reason why her death shocked those who knew her, said Angelica Londono, 17, of Greenwich, one of yesterday's mourners."This was so random," Londono said.
