Ecstasy Kills Canadian Teen
Posted by Childress on July 30, 2006
A probe into the Ecstasy drug death of a 15-year-old Ajax teen has spread across the Greater Toronto Area as police nabbed two teenage girls as they work their way “up the food chain.”
Two girls – aged 15 and 16 – were arrested by Durham Regional Police in raids on homes in Ajax yesterday.
The girls — who cannot be identified because of youth laws — are jointly charged with trafficking in a controlled substance and will likely have a bail hearing over the weekend.
The pair are alleged to have sold Ecstasy pills to the Ajax teen, who died in hospital from multiple organ failure and other complications July 19 — four days after she collapsed and fell into a coma, police said.
Police cautioned drug users in the area to avoid yellow ecstasy tabs with musical notes printed on them.
