Agitated on E, Boy Falls to Death
Posted by Childress on August 29, 2006
Graham Bousfield was 19 and on a camping trip near Lancaster, England with his friends. A little beer, a little Ecstasy, a little accident … and Bousfield was dead.
The coroner’s report found significant amounts of Ecstasy and alcohol in his system, and a head injury that mercifully killed him quickly.
Was this just a stumbling alcohol death? I don’t think so, and here’s why:
They had all been drinking but Graham’s friend, 17-year-old Cassandra Bemford, told the inquest he had seemed uncomfortable and agitated. She said: “He was talking about anything random and anything that popped into his head. He was also twitching. He said he wanted to go rock climbing and we all said no.”
That sounds like Ecstasy and alcohol getting together in a particularly bad way.
