DEDHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The family of Alonzo Polk is pushing for answers on how their son died.

The 17-year-old was pulled from a pool at a graduation party on Netta Road in Dedham last Sunday, and town officials announced on Friday that he had died.

Polk's family said he had just graduated with honors from Dedham High School. Polk's family is demanding that the police and the Norfolk District Attorney look into how and why the teenager died.

Dedham Police said in a release that a criminal complaint has been submitted to Dedham District Court, and that the police are trying to charge someone with giving alcohol to a minor and reckless endangerment — but the identity of the people being charged won't be made public until the court decides there is probable cause.

A vigil for Polk will be held at 6:30 PM this evening at the corner of Mt. Vernon and Boulevard Streets in Dedham.
