Arrests in drug-deal tied to teen’s death

Messages on a Center Grove teen’s cellphone led authorities to three men police said delivered or sold the drugs that he took the night of his death.

Two men have been arrested, and police are looking for one other. Police said all three supplied Samuel Xavier Motsay, 16, with a new hallucinogenic drug. The Center Grove High School student was found dead Sunday morning, and toxicology reports are pending.

The sheriff is issuing a warning to parents and teens that this new drug is in the community and extremely dangerous.
