Luke Pennington Died
Pennington suffered a fatal reaction after consuming just 1g of MDMA whilst ”experimenting” with the drug.
He was rushed to the hospital but died 24 hours later. Police initially believed Luke had been taking the so-called ‘Zombie-drug’ Spice, but post mortem tests showed he died as a result of MDMA toxicity.
Police arrested a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, but no further action was taken against him.
Today an inquest heard the tragedy on March 17, 2018, after Luke and other boys were staying over a house in Stockport, Greater Manchester.
The group bought the substance earlier that evening, and later at the house, Luke, from Bramhall, took it first, followed by a friend, and both fell ill.
Det Ch Insp Christopher Downey of Greater Manchester Police told the Stockport hearing: “Luke and his friends were all keen to experiment with drugs, and they all willingly agreed to purchase the drugs.
“Nobody knows how they were going to react to taking drugs. MDMA is known as a party drug, but it can have tragic consequences. Luke and his friends all wanted to experiment with drugs. Luke was confident and was leading the other boys.
“None of the adults in his life had any idea of what he was going to do that night. He is of a very caring family. The parents and family of those who had the sleepover are in no way to blame for this.
