The death last month of 34 year old Michael Adam Morse at Electric Daisy Carnival 2017 in Las Vegas has officially been ruled an accident. The Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner reported that Morse’s death on June 17, 2017 was an accident from acute toxicity from MDMA aka ecstasy and TFMPP aka “Legal X” as well as other contributing factors such as heat exposure. “A few of the many adverse effects of the drug Ecstasy is increased body temperature and dehydration, which when combined with hot weather creates a potentially deadly situation,” said Coroner John Fudenberg.
Morse and a couple of friends made the trip to EDC Las Vegas from Thousand Oaks, California. Morse began having seizures and convulsing at 3am while waiting in the Uber line. He was then taken to the EDC medical tent and died around four hours later.
