Grand Junction, Colo. (AP) A Mesa county woman found dead in a hot tub had alcohol in her system, and authorities say that likely contributed to her death.

A friend found the body of 44-year-old Debbie Moore early Monday when he went out to put the cover back on the spa.

Forty-eight-year-old Lane Tucker says he and his wife got into their hot tub Sunday evening along with Moore and another man -- after they'd all started drinking.

Mesa County Coroner Rob Kurtzman says preliminary toxicology reports show Moore did have alcohol in her bloodstream.

Kurtzman warned that mixing alcohol and hot tubs puts people at greater risk for injury or death.
