LEABROOKS: Police name teenager found dead at home

A Leabrooks teenager found dead at his home on Saturday, after he was believed to have taken fake ecstasy tablets, has been named as Daniel Gill.

The family of the 19-year-old man from Chapel Street did not wish to make a statement.

An inquest into his death is due to open at Chesterfield Coroners’ Court tomorrow at 10am.

Police officers were called to an address on Chapel Street at around 11.20pm on Saturday by the ambulance service, which was treating the man.

He was taken to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

A police spokesperson said: “The death is being investigated as being related to the taking of so-called ecstasy tablets.

“Initial tests on tablets recovered indicate that they do not contain any genuine ecstasy (MDMA) however further tests will be required to find the exact ingredients.”

A 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old woman have been arrested in connection with supplying drugs.

They have been released on bail pending further inquiries.
