Investigations continue into alleged drug overdose death

Police are appealing for information as they continue to investigate the death of Brisbane man, Josh Tam, the 22-year-old who died of an alleged drug overdose at the Lost Paradise music festival in Glenworth Valley.
At about 6pm, December 29, emergency services were called to the festival after reports that a man was unconscious.
Officers from Brisbane Water Police District attended and located Tam, who was being treated by medical staff at the venue.
He could not be revived and subsequently died.
Investigators have been preparing a report for the information of the Coroner, who will determine the circumstances surrounding the man’s death.
As part of the investigation, police are appealing for anyone who was with Tam leading up to, or during, the festival, to come forward.
In particular, police would like to speak to another patron, specifically, a woman who was with Tam when medical staff first responded to his collapse.
The woman, who is believed to have been an acquaintance of Tam’s, spoke briefly to medical staff and left without leaving her details.
Anyone with information about Tam’s movements prior to his death, is urged to come forward and contact police.
