LAKESIDE - A party ended in tragedy for an 18-year-old Kalispell man after he fell from a cliff near Lakeside.
Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry tells us the man was attending an underage party at the top of the cliffs on Monday night when he somehow fell.
A friend found the victim's body at the bottom of the 80 foot cliff on Tuesday morning at what Curry says this is a popular teen party spot.
"It is in a fairly difficult to access place, so yes, we have been to other underage parties there, at that location, over the years," Curry explained.
The Sheriff's Office is still investigating the circumstances surrounding the man's death. His name has not yet being released.
