Although people could be heard inside the Flannigan home, no one answered the door yesterday afternoon. Derry police Capt. Vern Thomas said the family asked that reporters respect their privacy.
Other neighbors declined to comment.
“The family needs some space right now,” one man said.
A Facebook page was created yesterday in Flannigan’s memory. On the page, those who knew Flannigan were asked not to speak to the media.
Wark said authorities are still investigating the drug Flannigan and the two others took. All three had similar symptoms.
He would not confirm the drug was “Molly,” a potent form of Ecstacy. He did say the drug, which produces a strong euphoria, is more commonly found in other regions of the country, including the Midwest.
Wark said overdoses of the drug are not common on the East Coast.
Anyone with information about the overdoses is asked to call Boston police at (617) 343-4470 or the CrimeStoppers tip line at 1-800-494-TIPS or by texting the word “TIP” to CRIME (27463).
