Tributes to man who died after suspected MDMA reaction


A keen skateboarder, who passed away following a suspected severe reaction to MDMA, has been remembered as a "great guy" that was "taken too early."

Ashleigh Thomas Green passed away shortly before 02:00 on Monday 19 August.

Paramedics were called to a property in St. Helier to treat the Pestokill Environmental employee in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The 29-year-old was taken to hospital, but later died in the Intensive Care Unit.

A 44-year-old woman and 28-year-old man were subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

They were taken into custody but later released, as Police continue their investigations.

Tributes have been pouring in from across the island since Mr Green's identity was released by Police.

Among the condolences sent to Mr Green's family and friends were memories of the popular member of the island's skate community, and comments about his character.

He was remembered by one islander as a "great guy", and another friend as a "gentle soul." Others reflected on the tragedy of the young man's death, claiming that he had been "taken too early".

An inquest is due to open into Mr Green's death on Tuesday.
