Designer Drug “Pink” Eyed In Utah Deaths

(KSL) Two 13-year-old Park City, Utah boys, best friends who attended Treasure Mountain Junior High School, both died unexpectedly within 48 hours of each other.

Grant Seaver was found dead in his home on Sunday. Tuesday morning, his best friend, Ryan Ainsworth was found dead on a couch in his house by his father. Ryan was last seen alive late Monday night.

How the boys died is not yet known, but police are investigating whether their deaths had anything to do with a dangerous new drug that they say all parents need to know about.

The sudden and unexplained deaths come at the same time the state issued a warning about a highly dangerous new synthetic opioid known as “pink” or “pinky.”

While police have not seized any pink in Park City as of Tuesday, in checking social media pages to try and retrace Grant and Ryan’s steps, the drug was brought up in several circles, according to Police Chief Wade Carpenter.
