LAS VEGAS (AP) -
Authorities in Las Vegas say it will take several weeks to determine the causes of death of two Electric Daisy Carnival fans in separate incidents during the weekend.
Clark County Coroner Michael Murphy said Monday that medical examiners will need the results of blood toxicology tests to determine how 25-year-old Anthony Anaya and 24-year-old Montgomery Tsang died.
Anaya was from Everett, Washington. He died late Saturday at the Vdara resort on the Las Vegas Strip after attending the festival that officials say drew about 400,000 people over its three-night run at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Tsang was from San Leandro, California. He died Saturday morning after being taken from the all-night electronic music festival to the hospital.
Police say both deaths were believed to be from medical conditions.
