(Newser) Four Loko might be banned, but it's still showing up in sketchy situations: Police in California's Huntington Beach found the bodies of two teenagers—a boy and a girl, aged 15 and 16—surrounded by drug refuse, beer bottles, and one can of the infamous alcoholic energy drink, the AP reports. It's not clear whether the Four Loko found at the scene was the original caffeinated version or the new decaf formula. Toxicology tests are pending. The teens were found in a supposedly vacant apartment.
