A party host is charged with evidence tampering following the death of a Long Island high school senior.Police are awaiting the results of an autopsy, but said Monday there appears to be no sign of foul play in the death of Natalie Ciappa. The 18-year-old would have graduated this week from Plainedge High School.

Ciappa's parents found her unconscious in a Seaford home at about 11 a.m. Saturday. They'd gone looking for her when she didn't return home.

Police say 19-year-old See Woo Sung was cleaning up liquor and beer bottles rather than helping the victim's parents. They also say he failed to call 911.

He was awaiting arraignment on the felony charge.
