Carson Price death: Boy, 15, charged with supplying class A drug after 13-year-old died

A teenager has been charged with supplying a class A drug after a 13-year-old boy was found dead in a park in South Wales last year.

The unnamed 15-year-old was arrested shortly after the death of Carson Price in Ystrad Mynach, near Caerphilly, on 12 April 2019.

He has now been charged with supplying MDMA, also known as ecstasy, and will appear at Cwmbran Youth Court on 28 July, Gwent Police said.

Carson was found unconscious at a park around a mile from his home in Hengoed, Caerphilly. He was taken to hospital in Cardiff 12 miles away, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
