A mother-of-three was ‘left to die’ after ‘taking a snowball of crack cocaine and heroin’, it is claimed.
Humberside Police are investigating after Emma Brennan, 30, was found dead in a house in Grimsby on Saturday November 2.
Friends allege that the young woman was ‘left to die’ in the corner of a room after becoming ill from an overdose, Grimsby Live claims.
It is thought she laid unresponsive in the house in Castle Street for several hours while others took drugs at the property.
She did not inject the drugs herself and they were given to her by another person, it is alleged.
Two women have been arrested in connection with the mother’s death, which is currently being treated as unexplained while investigations take place.
It is believed one of Emma’s children was with her partner when she died.
A neighbour said: ‘I knew that something bad had happened when I heard her partner crying loudly outside of the house.
‘I knew that Emma was involved with drugs, but she had been trying to kick the habit, although she kept falling off the wagon.
‘It is tragic to think that her children have now lost their mother this way, nobody deserves to die like that.’
Humberside Police are awaiting the results of toxicology tests and a post-mortem, when an inquest will be opened.
North East Lincolnshire Council have said that they are working with partner agencies to support Emma’s family at this time.
A spokesperson said: ‘In cases like this, the Council works with other agencies to ensure all family members affected are given the support they need.’
