Police: No charges in Middlebury student’s death

Print More

Police say they do not plan to charge anyone in the death of 19-year-old Middlebury College freshman Nicholas Garza, saying all evidence points to him simply getting drunk, falling into the Otter Creek and drowning.

And Addison County State’s Attorney John Quinn agrees, calling the Middlebury Police Department’s investigation thorough and complete.

The 19-year-old Garza, from Albuquerque, N.M., was captured on videotape Feb. 3 using a fake ID to buy alcohol. He disappeared after a campus party on Feb. 5, and his body was found in the creek May 27 after extensive searches.
