A second death connected to the weekend's Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas has been reported.

Both the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Las Vegas Sun newspapers say 25-year-old Anthony Anaya of Everett, Washington was an EDC festival-goer who was reported dead late Saturday at Vdara Las Vegas resort on the city's strip.

The cause of death is reportedly under investigation. The first party-goer to die over the weekend was identified as ...

 ... 24-year-old Montgomery Tsang of San Leandro, California.

Authorities said he collapsed early Saturday after he attended the first of three nights at EDC at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

We reached out to Clark County Corner's officials as well as those at the fire department but were unable to mirror the reports on Anaya's demise.

A coroner's official told us earlier in the day that results of a weekend autopsy on Tsang's body were inconclusive and that it would take six to eight weeks to come to a cause-of-death determination.

That's about the time it would take to get toxicology results back, which could show if the concert-goer might have taken drugs.

Electric Daisy Carnival has been dogged by drug-related deaths.

This is now the eighth death connected to Electric Daisy Carnival's various festivals since 2010.
