Ex-Girlfriend Says Man Took LSD Before His Death


The 26-year-old man who died suddenly at Deep Bay Tuesday afternoon had reportedly ingested the psychedelic drug LSD moments before his death.

According to reports, Tariq Simpson was at the beach with his ex-girlfriend when they both took two pills of the drug.

The woman reportedly told police Simpson began acting erratic, running wildly on the beach, making noise and speaking to people who were not there.

As she tried to calm him down, the deceased reportedly ran into the sea and submerged himself under the water.

Others on the beach reportedly assisted to take him out the water and efforts to resuscitate him failed.

When EMS arrived 13 minutes later there was no signs of life. He was later pronounced dead by the district doctor.

An autopsy will be performed to determine his exact cause of death.



  1. Hmmm…ok to do the drugs that we do know something about?? The intent was good but be careful with the message that may be sent.

  2. That drug sends u crazy instantly , unable to work.. better know as “mind control” … i guess some one wanted control, maybe he had some sort of power… so they took control…..

    • You sound quite uneducated, i suggest you do some research on lysergic acid before insinuating that it sends people crazy

    • Here Dynamite……Lysergic acid diethylamide, also known as acid, is a hallucinogenic drug. Effects typically include altered thoughts, feelings, and awareness of one’s surroundings. Many users see or hear things that do not exist. Dilated pupils, increased blood pressure, and increased body temperature are typical.

    • They better investigate that exgirlfriend properly.

      It sounds strange if they both took and nothing happened to her 🤔

      • People react differently to stimuli. Two people can fall asleep together but they won’t share the same dream.

    • My thoughts as well. & home come she wasn’t affected in the same way? I think she needs to be tested also. Maybe that’s what he took/was given wjile she took something else.. If anything at all.
      Sounds very fishy, but it’s only speculation at this point.

  3. Story is sketch and has holes in it. There is more to this. Firstly LSD isn’t done in the form of a tablet…..and the usual.. reaction to LSD isn’t this erratic behaviour….. I think that story is a cover up to what really may have taken place.

    • Known as “acid” and by many other names, LSD is sold on the street in small tablets (“microdots”), capsules or gelatin squares (“window panes”).

      It is sometimes added to absorbent paper, which is then divided into small squares decorated with designs or cartoon characters (“loony toons”). Occasionally it is sold in liquid form. But no matter what form it comes in, LSD leads the user to the same place—a serious disconnection from reality.

      Sometimes you can experience a ‘bad trip’ , involving a disturbing hallucination. This can lead to panic and risky behavior, like running across a road or attempting self-harm.

  4. This is very unfortunate. I do wonder if the young lady will be charged?

    Another thing that stuck me, was the time it took EMS to arrive. Without a doubt, it is more than high time that we have an EMS outpost round south.

    If memory serves me, I think I heard minister Samantha Marshall speak of such an initiative some time ago, but nothing had happened as far as I’m aware. If I’m wrong I apologise from now.

    The fact is, that in an emergency, every second, every minute count. If there’s an EMS team round south, response time would be faster, primary treatment would be fastest, and transport to the hospital is faster.

    I hope Mr. Joseph reads this and start the mobilisation process for round South.

  5. oh dear! This is so heartbreaking. His mother must be inconsolable. My condolences and prayers to his family and friends. Sigh…. 26 is way to young to go

  6. Drugs are one of the gateways to the spirit world. If you are not covered by the blood of Yahusha (Christ) your soul will be open to immediate demonic visitations and possession, that will ultimately destroy you.

    I pray for our Youth that they will turn back to the Most High and leave the Devils devices before its too late.

  7. Deep Bay is not in the South. It’s actually next to Royal Antiguan (now Royalton Resort).

    This is unfortunate and I hope Persons remain sensitive to the situation and for the family in mourning.

  8. There are too many holes in the story made by “girlfriend.” What drug did she give to him? If she also took it, was it in her bloodstream, did she have any reactions? Who are people investigating this case? She should have been taken into custody and observed. Soon she would have left the island and skipped out on a manslaughter charge. There is a chain of events that should be investigated.

  9. My condolences to his family and may God strengthen and comfort them. May his soul rest in peace.
    Why would he be on the beach taking drugs with an ex-girlfriend? And how come that she wasn’t affected by the drugs?

      • @… I didn’t know that you have to be dumb to ask questions… And no I don’t take drugs. It is the first time I ever heard of such drugs. I don’t drink alcohol or smoke and never did. Sorry my questions offended you in anyway. Please accept my apology.
        And yes, I had read up on the drugs LSD after I had made the first comments. Again, accept my apology.

        • Mary Jane, I do not think … was talking to you since you never said anything about LED not coming in Tablet form. It can come in Tablet form tho..

          The most common form of LSD, is drops of LSD solution dried onto gelatin sheets, pieces of blotting paper or sugar cubes, which release the drug when they are swallowed.2 LSD is also sometimes sold as a liquid, in a tablet or in capsules.

  10. this is to suspicious why didnt the ex girlfriend reacted that way after the taking the pill as well? she had a stalker behavior she gave this guy something unknowingly which led to his sudden death. the police need to interrogate this further.

  11. This is a very sad situation I pray that god Grant’s his family the strength they need to get through this

  12. My question is…what was he doing at the beach with his ex? Why did he feel so comfortable to take LSD with his ex. I am wondering if his ex had another motive. Is it that they are two extremely close ex lover(friends)? Who dumped who? Why were they at the beach in the first place? Did she offer him something to eat/drink and laced it with the LSD. She seems to be doing great after taking it. Did she have any side effects?

  13. @WELL…thanks for pointing that out. Realistically an ex makes it even more suspicious and question her motives. After the trama and grief, his family should hire an investigator. The police seem to be incapable of forensic detective work. Antigua need to hire detectives who can detect.

  14. LSD has different effects on different people. It works off of your current mental state and can amplify your fears or feelings of joy. It depends on the person and the dosage. Taking 2 tabs just so? Not a good idea..but you people saying “howcome nothing happen to the girl?”. The things on his mind are not the same things on hers.
