TRIBUTES have been paid to a teen who died after a suspected "drug death" when he was found "unwell" at a house party.
The youngster has been named locally as Jake 'Jay' Jones after the tragedy over the weekend.
Emergency crews raced to the home in Ballingry, Fife, after reports that a 16-year-old had become unresponsive just before noon on Sunday.
