Detective Superintendent Pete Hill of Warwickshire police made a statement, saying: “Whilst the cause of death has not been confirmed and we are keeping an open mind as to whether the substance caused a bad reaction or an overdose, we would advise anyone who has also taken it to seek medical advice. We would also ask anyone who purchased any pills but have not yet taken them to please safely dispose of them.”
