Authorities don't know much more yet about the woman who died at the Bonnaroo music festival near Nashville this week. They have identified her as 32-year-old Beth Myers of Pittsburgh, according to the Tennessean. (Other services say she's from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.) Friends found her in her tent Thursday night. “There was no evident cause of death,” says a police spokesman. “She didn't have any marks on her body.” An autopsy is planned. Reuters notes that with temperatures in the mid-90s, authorities are looking into whether heat exhaustion figured in. The festival wraps up tomorrow. (More Bonnaroo stories.)
