MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A report released Thursday shows a Dawson teenager who fled an underage drinking party died from hypothermia.

The incident happened on March 9 after the Lac Qui Parle Sheriff’s Office was called to the 2700 block of 280th Street at about 12:30 a.m. in rural Madison, Minn., on an underage party with alcohol. About 20 vehicles were parked on a farm site and when authorities arrived, 18-year-old Michael Anyasike was one of many to flee the scene.

He went missing and was found 12 hours later about a mile from where the party took place. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Authorities said Thursday Anyasike died of hypothermia due to environmental exposure, and alcohol was a contributing factor in his death.

He played football for Dawson-Boyd and was planning on attending St. John’s University.
