The woman who died early Saturday of a suspected drug overdose at Boonstock has been identified as Lynn Tolocka.

Police said only that she was a 24-year-old woman from Leduc, Alta., but CTV Vancouver reported her name on Monday.

Tolocka’s personal Facebook page has been filling with tributes since Saturday.

She reportedly died one day short of her 25th birthday.

A total of 80 people were taken to Penticton Regional Hospital from the Boonstock Music and Arts Festival over the course of the three-day event, according to Interior Health.
