Two Southlake Carroll Senior High School students were found dead from apparent drug overdoses Saturday morning at a Grapevine home, and a 22-year-old man was in custody Sunday accused of failing to call for help when he found the teens unconscious, according to Grapevine police.

The teens, identified as Kyle McNutt, 17, of Grapevine, and Chase Nunez, 18, of Grapevine, had been ingesting illegal narcotics, alcohol and marijuana with Cullen Marino, the suspect, in Marino's Grapevine home Friday night, police said.

At some point during the night, Marino found the teens unconscious in the living room of his home in the 700 block of Heather Wood Drive in Grapevine, said Grapevine police Sgt. Robert Eberling on Sunday.

"The investigation indicated that the victims may have had a chance if they had received medical treatment at that time," Eberling said in a telephone interview.

Instead, Marino moved the teens to a bedroom and failed to call for help, authorities said.

Marino's father found the teens unresponsive shortly before 9 a.m. Saturday and called 911.

When paramedics arrived, the teens were dead, authorities said.

Marino was in the Grapevine Jail Sunday with bail set at $10,000.

He faces two counts of criminally negligent homicide, Eberling said.

McNutt and Nunez were seniors at Carroll Senior High, according to Grapevine police.
