2 found dead after wild party
Durban - A wild party at Sheffield Beach near Ballito in KwaZulu-Natal has resulted in the deaths of two young people - allegedly after they took contaminated drugs.
The bodies of Gareth Kyle, 29, and Camryn Coetzee, 29, were found in a flat early on Sunday morning. A third person is fighting for his life in hospital, reported the Daily News.
Both bodies had multiple puncture marks on their arms.
The three were at a private party in a flat where large quantities of drugs and alcohol were allegedly consumed. More than 20 friends had apparently met up, swimming at the pool in the complex before having drinks and a braai.
Police found used syringes, alcohol and a small quantity of drugs.
A witness said Kyle had withdrawn money and met someone to allegedly buy drugs, but this was questioned by his foster brother, Tony Coetser, who said Kyle did not take drugs. He has hired a private investigator to look into Kyle’s death.
It was expected that a toxicology report would confirm that the drug that had killed Kyle and Coetzee was contaminated cocaine.
Police have opened inquest dockets.
