Four-year-old dies after mother sedates her with heroin


A four-year-old girl died after being given hard drugs by her mother, who wanted to have sex with her boyfriend without being disturbed.

Michala Pyke, 37, texted her drug dealer partner, John Rytting, 40, with a message about giving the youngster diazepam. The little girl, Poppy Widdison, was seen as an ‘inconvenience’ and allegedly given drugs by the pair over a six-month period. Tests showed the ‘dance drug’ ketamine, heroin and methadone – a heroin substitute – were also in her system.

Poppy allegedly suffered both physical and emotional abuse from her mother and her partner.

Police found more than 1,000 tablets of controlled drugs scattered around in blister packs at the man’s flat while paramedics discovered the four-year-old was turning blue and not breathing when called after her lifeless body was discovered, according to Daily Mail UK.
