Louella Michie, the youngest daughter of John Michie, was found dead in the wooded area of the forest on the edge of Bestival site following an overdose of ecstasy and ketamine. The area was less guarded and was visited mostly by the drug users during the festival. A friend who saw her in that area spoke to Sun stating,
"Her eyes were usually so beautiful but, when I saw her on Sunday, she didn't look very well at all and was unsteady. Her eyes weren't good then. She looked odd and didn't look very happy."
Her boyfriend, Ceon, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of her murder and dealing the Class A drug that might have been the reason for her death. Turns out Louella is the first person to die from taking the 2C-P drug as there have not been any reported deaths from it before.
Ceon was soon released pending investigation after two days in custody.

Ceon’s Grandmother Sylvia expressed to MailOnline on 12 September 2017, a day after Louella’s death,
'I am shocked at his arrest. He lived with me when he was around 22 years of age. He was a very polite - I have never known him to be aggressive or violent'.
She even stated that she had never seen him with drugs and would have been shocked if he dealt them.
Louella’s family expressed believing that Ceon had no intention of “malice” and her death was “a tragic accident” due to the intake of “illegal substance.” The post-mortem showed no signs of assault.
