    State officials will investigate whether alcohol laws were violated on a Boston Harbor cruise where a 21-year-old man fell overboard and died.

    The Boston Globe reports that the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission said Monday it will investigate. Kris Foster, general counsel of the agency, wouldn't provide details about the investigators, but said it generally looks for violations, like people being overserved.

    Aaron DiBella's body was found early Sunday, hours after he fell overboard from the Provincetown II ship during a party cruise.

    Friends of DiBella have been critical of the response aboard the ship.
