A drug becoming popular among teens and college students is cheap — costing as little as a dollar or two a hit — but also has proved to be deadly.
The drug, called 25I-NBOMe, or N-bomb, is not well-known to police. In fact, the first time investigators in both Johnson County and Indianapolis had heard of N-bomb was when testing showed it was the substance found next to the body of a Center Grove teen last weekend.
Investigators are still waiting for toxicology tests but suspect 16-year-old Samuel Xavier Motsay took the drug the morning of his death. N-bomb also has been linked to at least one other death in central Indiana, police said.
