A young girl tragically died after taking an ‘extremely high level’ of ecstasy.
13-year-old Eboney Chesire, a student at Rainhill High School, passed away after suffering a severe seizure in December 2018.
Her grieving mother, Kerry Williams, insists that her daughter did not take the drug herself and claims that the “bottle was laced” with the Class A drug.
Detective Inspector Leanne Hobin described the young girl’s death as a “tragedy” but said “despite pursuing every line of inquiry” no one got arrested on suspicion of spiking her beverage.
An inquest into Eboney’s death heard how she had been kept off school due to cold-like symptoms days before she died.
She had been given paracetamol and her condition seemed to have improved.
The teen had been to a local convenience store earlier in the day to buy Lucozade, Monster crisps, and noodles.
When Mrs. Williams came back from work, there was a small verbal argument about the mess in the house.
That night, the mother-of-two was woken up by noises and she found her daughter having a seizure in her bed.
Emergency services arrived and it was initially thought that Eboney was having a seizure because of her high temperature linked to her cold-like symptoms.
But doctors at Whiston Hospital said that her condition was drug-induced.
Toxicology reports showed an “extremely high level of MDMA, or ecstasy, in a level lying above the rage of which fatalities have been reported.”
Detective Inspector Hobal confirmed that officers had not identified any offenders for drug supply crimes.
“Working closely with the Coroner’s Office, a full and thorough investigation was carried out into the circumstances surrounding Eboney’s death,” DI Hobal said. “Despite pursuing every available line of enquiry, unfortunately, no arrests or charges were made in connection with the supply of drugs which took Eboney’s life.
“The death of Eboney was absolutely tragic, and I can only begin to imagine how difficult the past two years have been for her family.
“I offer them my sincere and continued condolences. We will continue to support them in any way we can going forward.”
Eboney’s grieving family were disappointed with the investigation. Mrs. Williams said: “She didn’t do this to herself.”
“Who puts ecstasy into a drink?” she asked. “Her bottle was laced with drugs. You don’t realize how suspicious this is.”
Mrs. Williams described her child as “a very popular and bubbly character, forever making people laugh.”
“Eboney oozed confidence, parents have praised me for the way I raised her, because their children had got bullied and Eboney was the one who took them under her wing and protected them.
“Nobody would really argue with Eboney as they all wanted to be her friend, she had so many good qualities. She was very clever, at the age of five or six she used to know every capital in the world, she even knew Madagascar.”
She continued: “She’d have the teachers in laughter, once when aged three she used the word ‘procrastination’ and said, ‘my granddad taught me that’.
“She was very bright and looking forward to her GCSEs. She wanted to be a doctor. It’s the not knowing what happened, not having her in the house.”
