The opening of the inquests of three men, whose deaths are being connected to the ‘Superman’ ecstasy drug, are being held on Friday, police have said.
Justas Ropas, 22, of Bramford Lane, Ipswich, died on Christmas Eve last year. Gediminas Kulokas, 24, of Provan Court, Ipswich, died at his home address on January 1.
These deaths could be linked to the red triangle shaped pills, Suffolk Constabulary confirmed earlier this month.
John Hocking, 20, of Pembroke Avenue, Woodbridge, died in Rendlesham on January 1. His death is still being investigated by police.
The inquests are being held at the Active Business Centre in Bury St Edmunds on Friday, starting at 2pm.
The news comes after police said more than 400 red triangle shaped pills with a ‘Superman’ logo were found in a public place near Norwich Road in Ipswich on January 4.
A force spokesman said it is believed that this type of drug could be linked to the deaths of the two men in Ipswich.

Testing on the drugs has revealed they contain PMMA, a stronger and more dangerous active ingredient than those usually found in ecstasy, police said.
