FORT MYERS, Fla.- Lee County Sheriff's deputies are investigating the death of a 27-year-old man from New York, who was found unresponsive after a night of drinking with friends in Fort Myers.

Officers responded to a home on the 8100 block of Lake San Carlos Cir., just after 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, and met with two friends of the victim, identified as Johnny Byrd.

The men told deputies Byrd flew in from New York to spend time with them. The trio allegedly went drinking at Cadillac Jack's and Uptown Larry's the night before, and arrived home at 2:00 a.m. That's when the friends said Byrd began throwing up, but was coherent and able to communicate. The two men woke up the next morning to find Byrd lying in the living room, unresponsive.

The investigation continues.
