A schoolboy found dead after taking a lethal cocktail of heroin, alcohol and an anti-depressant probably obtained the drugs from his family, an inquest was told.So sad. But the family history reads like....well, like something the scriptwriter of 'Eastenders' would reject as too implausible:
The previous year Drew had discovered the girl he thought was his sister, Samantha, who was fighting heroin addiction, was in fact his mother.
At the time of his death she was in rehab and he was spending time with his biological father and his aunt.
His uncle, who lived with them in the child’s grandparents’ house, was also a heroin user.
His uncle and aunt both used citalopram and his mother a similar drug.
Relatives insisted he had taken the news about his parentage “really well” and was the “happiest he had ever been”.
He spent his last evening playing computer games with his uncle Michael Quinlan junior. But the next morning grandfather Michael Quinlan senior found the teenager’s lifeless body.And before anyonre says 'Typical council housing estate underclass trash!', well, he was found..
...by his grandfather face down on a sofa at his family’s £4 million house in Richmond...*boggle*
