Mother to speak of child's alcohol death
Dennis Friend, Staff Writer,
An audience at Iowa Western Community College will learn the tragic cost of college binge drinking from someone with first-hand knowledge. Patty Spady will speak Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the IWCC Kanesville Arena. Her daughter was found dead in a fraternity house at Colorado State University on Sept. 5, 2004. "I don't think she understood drinking could kill you," her father, Rick Spady, told ABC News' Good Morning America after her death. Authorities said 19-year-old Samantha Spady, a sophomore at Colorado State majoring in business, died of alcohol poisoning after drinking 30 to 40 beers and vanilla-flavored vodka drinks in an 11-hour period.
