Ecstasy kills 18-year-old

Ecstasy kills 18-year-old


Wendy Papas had taken one of the biggest doses ever recorded

A "perfectly normal" young woman died after taking one of the biggest doses of the drug ecstasy ever recorded.
Shop worker Wendy Papas, 18, was sharing a room at the Ibis Hotel, in Southampton, with her 26-year-old boyfriend James Hatcher, when he woke during the night of 8 March to find her lying dead beside him.

Dr Allen Anscombe, a pathologist, told an inquest on Tueday that Miss Papas had 4,100 micrograms per litre of blood of the drug in her body, although he could not say how many tablets she might have taken.

It was one of the highest levels ever encountered, he said, and a verdict of death due to the non-dependent use of drugs was recorded by the coroner.

Dr Allen Anscombe

Mr Hatcher, from Southampton, told the inquest that his girlfriend of one year had taken two ecstasy tablets earlier in the evening while the couple were in the hotel bar.

After she took the second tablet, he told the court he had thought this was "a bit heavy".

He said Miss Papas had taken them out of a bag which he thought contained about 10 tablets, and had offered him the drug.

He told the hearing he took two half tablets.

When they returned to their hotel room, Mr Hatcher said he fell asleep.

When he awoke, he knew there was a problem.

"I put my arm on Wendy. I then felt there was something badly wrong," he said.

He called for help but Miss Papas, who lived with her family in the city, was pronounced dead.

Heart attack

Dr Anscombe told the hearing in Southampton that Miss Papas was fit and healthy, but toxicology tests showed the massive dose in her system, which caused her death.

It was likely she died of a heart attack.

"This is very much one of the highest levels encountered. Death has occurred at a much lower amount of the drug in the system," he said.

The death was originally treated as manslaughter but Detective Sergeant David Morgan, of Hampshire Constabulary, said no charges were brought.

The supplier of the drugs has never been traced.

Southampton coroner Keith Wiseman said the death was a tragedy waiting to happen.

"There cannot be anything more tragic than the death of a lovely young girl with her whole life in front of her especially occurring in this way," he said.

Died off that small amount? Must have been pretty good. I know people who take twice that n barely even get high.

I know kids that will pop 6-10 pills in a night, they may be very stupid but they do exist. Wonder how long that will last

I guess nobody died from alcohol or tobacco this week.

true not one learyfan. people who put down tobacco and alcohol instead taking up hard core dangerous drugs such as ecstacy do not wish to live long healthy lives.

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

I suppose the cost of E now has a lot to do with it. With prices as low as ?2 a pill now it's not exactly surprising that people take more.. same reason people drink more vodka/whatever when its going for 50p a shot in clubs.. I know I do anways :tongue:

"Ecstasy kills 18-year-old"

when are we going to start seeing, "eating steak every day kills 55-year-old". "cliff kills 26-year-old". "car kills 17-year-old" headlines?

she killed herself by being an idiot. "Stupidity kills-18-year-old" might be a more apt headline.
