A 15-year-old girl has died after taking what friends believe was an ecstasy pill, amid warnings of a fatal batch being distributed in the area, reports said today.
Rose Farley collapsed after going to a birthday party at a social club in the UK city of Liverpool and later died in hospital, the Daily Mail reports. Her death is the fourth in the area in recent weeks, and comes after earlier police warnings about ecstasy-type tablets known as pink ecstasy, Dr Death or Pink McDonalds being sold on the streets.
Police have launched an inquiry into claims the teenager’s drink was spiked but say it is too early to speculate.
“The implication that this may be drug related is just one of the lines of inquiry that our comprehensive investigation is looking at,” Detective Superintendent Tim Keelan of Merseyside Police said.
Friends of the dead girl have posted tributes to her on social networking sites.
