SAN DIEGO (AP) - Police say a costumed teenager who was found bloody and unconscious during last weekend's Comic-Con was likely the victim of a fall, and the injuries weren't caused by an assault. The 17-year-old girl was found in the pool area of a hotel near the San Diego Convention Center, where Comic-Con is held. Police concluded she fell about six feet.
