Detectives have issued a warning following the death of a 19-year-old man after he apparently took badly-produced drugs at a flat in Witham in Essex.
Two other men were taken ill but later recovered after hospital treatment.
They're believed to have taken a drug from the LSD family known as 2CE.
Officers were called to Bramble Road, Witham at about 2.25am on Saturday April 27 by the ambulance service. A 19-year-old man from Braintree was found dead. Another man aged 18 from Braintree and a man aged 21 from Witham were taken to Broomfield Hospital.
We believe that one person has died and two others were taken ill because they have taken a drug that was poorly-produced by criminals who have no regard for the lives of their customers. Anyone with information about these drugs or anyone with any information about the death should contact us urgently.”
Two 19-year-old men from Braintree and a 21-year-old man from Witham have been arrested in connection with the investigation.
