'Drug death' men inquests to open

Inquests into three men whose deaths may be linked to a rogue batch of ecstasy are expected to be opened today.

Suffolk Police issued a warning over the red triangular pills with a Superman logo on them after two men died in Ipswich on Christmas Eve and New Year's Day. The death of a third man in Rendlesham is also being investigated in connection with the pills.

Suffolk Police confirmed the man who died on Christmas Day was Justas Ropas, 23, of Bramford Lane, Ipswich.

The men who died on New Year's Day were Gediminas Kulokas, who was due to turn 24 on the day he died, and John Hocking, 21, from Pembroke Avenue, Woodbridge.

Adrian Lubecki, 19, of St Matthews Street, Ipswich, has been charged with being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs and possession with intent to supply a Class B drug in connection with the deaths.

The inquests are due to be opened in Bury St Edmunds later.
