    Dale Lingle thought his 16-year-old son was simply sleeping off a late night of computer and video games when he found him still lying in bed in the middle of the afternoon  July 18.

    More than two months after his death, Codie Lingle’s family finally knows with some certainty what caused the death of their son and brother.
