Benton Harbor Police Continue Investigation Into Death Of 18-Year-Old Karrington Penny

The investigation into the death of 18-year-old Karrington Penny continues in Benton Harbor. Investigators released his identification Thursday afternoon. Foul play is not suspected, as Penny had no injuries. In a press release, Benton Harbor Deputy Public Safety Director Dan McGinnis noted Penny had "very high levels of alcohol and drugs in his system," adding that likely caused him to pass out in a yard in the 400 block of East Empire Avenue on New Year's Eve. He was found just before 6 a.m. on New Year's Day. The Benton Harbor teenager attended St. Joseph High School in the 2012-13 school year, playing a few football games for the Bears before leaving the team. His death has been ruled accidental.
