WASHINGTON - A 19-year-old woman died after taking the drug "Molly" at a concert venue in Washington D.C. late Wednesday night, police told WUSA9.com. Victoria Callahan, from Steling, Virginia, was at an electronic dance music show called Flume at the Echostage concert venue in Northeast D.C.  Callahan was taken to the hospital around midnight.  Hospital officials confirmed Thursday afternoon that Callahan died while in the emergency room later that morning.
