Man charged in connection with Poppy Rodgers death
A MAN has been charged in connection with the death of 16-year-old Poppy Rodgers.
Yesterday a 24-year-old local man was charged with supplying her with a Class A controlled drug (4-methylamphetamine).
He was also charged with another count of supplying a class A drug, four counts of attempting to supply a Class A drug and possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.
He is due to appear at York Magistrates’ Court on October 31.
Det Chief Insp Nigel Costello, of North Yorkshire Police, said: “The thoughts of North Yorkshire Police are with Poppy’s family and friends, who have shown great dignity in these difficult times.”
Following her death, Poppy was described as a “beautiful, funny and charming” girl by her parents, who said they would miss her terribly.
Ann and Mark Rodgers said their daughter, Poppy, was a “bright young girl with the world ahead of her”.
