Social media sites are abuzz today with reaction to the death of a 21-year-old Maple Ridge woman.
Although police haven’t officially released the name of the young woman who died Monday – two days after supposedly taking ecstasy – it is clear it was Ali Mosdell.
Mosdell, a 2007 graduate from Samuel Robertson Technical, was partying with friends Saturday night when she allegedly consumed a fatal mix of ecstasy and alcohol.
By early Sunday morning she was rushed to hospital where she died two days later.
On Twitter, Mosdell is referred to as Mozzie and has several Twitter accounts set up in her memory.
On Friday, July 27, the night before Mosdell overdosed, she answered a tweet about what time she would be off work on Saturday.
She wrote: “I should be off just after 6 tmo. Than it’s partyyyy time” [sic].
Mounties and the coroner are still investigating her sudden death.
“This is a very sad case,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Supt. Dave Walsh.
“Initial information indicates the consumption of alcoholic beverages and illicit drugs may have played a prominent role in the death of this young woman,” he explained.
“Police are working closely with health care professionals and the coroner on determining what caused this death.”
It has been alleged the victim ingested some MDMA (also known as ecstasy) during a night of partying.
