A 14-year old Naperville girl whose death has been linked to the swine flu also had an undiagnosed heart condition. Michelle Fahle died Thursday.The DuPage County coroner's office says the heart defect compromised Fahle's health before she contracted the H1N1 virus.

More tests are needed before the exact cause of death is determined but the coroner's office said the heart condition 'strongly contributed' to Fahle's death.

She was a freshman at Naperville North High School.
