A woman was found dead at Firefly Festival in Dover, Delaware, over the weekend according to NBC Local news affiliate WDEL-FM.
The 20-year-old, who has been identified as Caroline Friedman, was reportedly found unresponsive at the festival’s campgrounds early Sunday morning. She was then transferred to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
