The 18-year-old man who died at the party on Chobham Common in Surrey has not been identified but police have said that he was from the Farnham area.
It is believed that the substance involved may have been sold as 2C-I or 2C-E. An urgent warning has been issued by Surrey Police to recreational drug users who were at the party and took the drug to seek urgent medical attention if they start to feel unwell.
Temporary superintendent Matt Goodridge said: “Our advice is to go to A&E immediately if you believe you took this drug and start to exhibit worrying symptoms. Similarly, if you think you have taken this drug elsewhere and start to feel unwell, our advice is to seek urgent medical attention.”
He added: “We have carried out extensive enquiries following the tragic death of this young man and the fact that we have already made two arrests demonstrates our commitment to tackling the use and supply of illegal drugs. The message is clear - drug dealing in any form will not be tolerated on the streets of Surrey.”
He said that anyone with information about the substance or anyone who was at the event on Saturday night and has not spoken to officers should contact Surrey Police on 101, quoting Operation Fox.
