A second arrest was made Monday in connection to a fatal crash in Forsyth County that killed a 17-year-old teenager.

"I haven't put it down since I found out," said Abby Speer, a friend of the teen who died.

Speer said she is holding on to a shirt which belonged to the teen who died.

According to Deputy Doug Rainwater with the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office, the alcohol-related crash occurred after several teens left a house party.

Police obtained a search warrant for the house of 18-year-old Jeremiah Funke, where the party involving 60 teenagers occurred.

Funke was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession/consumption of alcohol by a minor and maintaining a disorderly house.

Funke was later released from the Forsyth County Detention Center after posting $2,365 bond.

The car crash killed 17-year-old Paul Castell Jr., and sent three other passengers to the hospital, including the driver.

The driver, 17-year-old Adam Di'Millo, was arrested after authorities determined he was impaired. He was charged with DUI, underage possession/consumption of alcohol and first-degree homicide by vehicle. On Monday, a judge set Di'Millo's bond at just over $19,000.
