Police investigating the tragic death of Josh Reeson have made another arrest.
An 18-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs. He has been released on conditional bail.
Josh, 15, was taken to York hospital by ambulance in the early hours of Sunday 27 September. He died later that day.
An inquest heard that he suffered multiple organ failure after he took a ‘significant quantity’ of ecstasy.
Josh and his friend left an address on Fulford Road around 3.10-3.15am on that Sunday. From there they walked down Fulford Road towards town, they then double back slightly and went down Broadway West.
The two boys then walked back on to Fulford Road, where they met a female friend near to the junction of Maple Grove.
It is at this point, on the junction of Fulford Road and Maple Grove that Josh became ill. A relative of Josh’s friend called the ambulance and stayed with him until it arrived.
A 15-year-old girl, two 16-year-old boys, a 17-year-old boy, a man aged 18, a 33-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man, who have all been arrested in connection with the incident, remain on conditional bail.
Two teenage boys, aged 14 and 15 remain under investigation.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police.
