New York man faces drug charges tied to ‘Electric Zoo’ death

A New York man has been charged with selling the potent party drug “molly” to a 23-year-old concertgoer who died of an overdose at a massive electronic music festival last summer, prosecutors said on Wednesday. Patrick Morgan, 23, is accused of selling dozens of pills at the three-day concert on New York City’s Randall’s Island, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement. Morgan, of Buffalo, New York, has been tied to the MDMA pills linked to the death of Jeffrey Russ, Bharara said. “As alleged, Patrick Morgan sold drugs that, far from enabling a good time, resulted in tragedy with the death of Jeffrey Russ,” Bharara said.
