Tests results have revealed that a synthetic version of LSD was ingested by a 17 year old who later died at an area hospital last week. An investigation by Porter County Sheriff's Detectives states that two juveniles with Cody Riffett, moments before his death, advised that after he took the drug, he began to severely hallucinate and go through a psychotic episode. Authorities were called out to the 400 block of Sturgeon Road west of Valparaiso around 5-o'clock last week on Tuesday evening for a teenage boy lying unconscious in the roadway. The Drug Task Force on Friday executed a search warrant at the residence of an 18 year old Union Township man who allegedly sold the drug to the victim, with whom authorities had conducted two drug buys, and seized additional narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
