Bestival drugs death: Male found guilty of manslaughter


A man who gave his girlfriend drugs at a festival and filmed her as she died has been found guilty of manslaughter, as BBC reports.

Louella Fletcher-Michie was found dead in woodland near the Bestival site in Dorset after taking the drug 2CP.

Ceon Broughton did little to help his girlfriend – the daughter of Holby City actor John Michie – for six hours as he feared breaching a suspended jail term.

He filmed Ms Fletcher-Michie, 24, and branded her a “drama queen” as she lay dying on 11 September 2017.

Broughton, 30, of Island Centre Way, Enfield, London, was also found guilty at Winchester Crown Court of supplying the Class A drug 2CP.

Both verdicts were unanimous and he is due to be sentenced on Friday morning.

Speaking outside court, Mr Michie said: “Regardless of the outcome of this harrowing trial there were never going to be any winners.

“We began our life sentence on what would have been Louella’s 25th birthday. Ceon’s life sentence is knowing that he didn’t help Louella to live.”
