Death of a young male

Shortly before 6.30am on Saturday 17 June 2017, police were notified of the sudden death of an 18- year-old male at the General Hospital.   Whilst subject to toxicology reports and a post-mortem, evidence at this time suggests the death is as a result consumption of “Ikea” ecstasy tablets.  The man’s family have been notified and we can identify him as Kyle Pringle of St. Helier.

A report will be submitted for the consideration of the Deputy Viscount.

Following the death, three associated arrests have been made and a quantity of “Ikea” branded ecstasy tablets have been seized.

We strongly advise members of the public not to take these tablets in the interests of their health. Anyone who does take the tablets and becomes unwell are urged to seek medication attention through their GP or in an emergency, attend at the Accident & Emergency Department.
