Faye Allen, 17, died Monday at an event in the UK called Don’t Let Daddy Know. According to her boyfriend with whom she attended the event, Allen took a red double-strength “Mastercard” pill and had an adverse reaction. Paramedics were called and she passed away at the hospital shortly thereafter.
Two people, a 19-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman, have since been arrested in conjunction with the investigation with intent to supply a class A drug (equivalent to Schedule I in the US).
The event Allen was attending held up to 5,000 people at peak hours, and was DJ’d by Showtek, Blasterjaxx, Don Diablo, Laidback Luke, Ummet Ozcan, Florian Picasso, Sem Vox and Third Party.
Detective chief inspector Ben Ewart of GMP’s Trafford division said: “Our thoughts and condolences remain with the family of this girl at this heartbreaking time. We have made two arrests in connection with this investigation and currently have a man and a woman in custody who will be questioned later today.
“Sadly, we know that other people will have taken this form of ecstasy, known as ‘MasterCard’, and we are continuing to urge anybody who may have taken it to please get themselves checked out. If you have information that you believe can assist us with our investigation or you know where this drug may have come from then please contact police.”
