There is surprising new information on the death of a Santa Rosa teenager who died during a sleepover last summer. The Sonoma County coroner says 14-year-old Takeimi Rao overdosed on the so-called "date rape" drug GHB. It was consumed in a beverage.

Investigators initially thought the teen might have died from alcohol poisoning after drinking vodka with friends, all the girls threw up that night but Rao never woke up.

They're now trying to determine if Rao took it knowingly and how the group got it.
