Police are now reporting that the man may have taken several small yellow pills in Leeds on a night out before he arrived in Manchester, which they are now speculating contributed to his death.

A detective for Greater Manchester Police expressed condolences for the deceased by releasing a statement saying: “Firstly our thoughts are with this young man’s family following his death. They have suffered a terrible loss and we will do all we can to give them support and welfare at such a difficult time.”

Despite these recent claims police are urging the public not to speculate as the cause of death has not been confirmed as of yet, as Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire police are still in the process of collaborating a cause of death.
