    Interesting follow up here:

    Mom: Teen was not supposed to stay at hotel after prom

    HOUSTON — The mother of a teenager found dead after prom night in Houston feels like she was mislead by her daughter's prom date and his mother.

    "I said you look beautiful," said Juana Barron, Jacqueline Gomez's mother, as she looked at the last photo she snapped of her 17-year-old daughter.

    "She was so happy," Barron said. "You should have seen her big smile on her face when she left."

    Gomez was off to her senior prom at the Hyatt North Houston Hotel on Friday. Her mother, who was too distraught to show her face on camera, said she expected to see her daughter back at home later that night.

    Very sad indeed, it seems that such incidents are a growing phenomenon. :(

    I don't really get the whole prom thing. It seems like an excuse to get drunk and have sex (as if kids need an excuse), but the difference is the parents finance it to a high degree. The celebration of debauchery (and I'm no prude, but this is so commercialized) is bound to lead to some very sad ends.

    No judgement of the particular individuals or families in this case, just a judgement of the overall societial take on these events.
