A TRAGIC teenager who died of a suspected drug overdose boasted on twitter about getting “f*****” just hours before he collapsed.
Billy Robson, 16, and several friends were rushed to hospital after a party in Newton St Boswells, Scottish Borders, on Monday night.
The agriculture student from nearby Kelso died shortly after being admitted to Borders General Hospital.
The cause of death will not be known until a post mortem examination is carried out but insiders have said drugs are suspected to have been involved.
On Monday, Billy tweeted friends about his plans for the night.
Responding to a friend who asked him about his plans for the weekend, he responded: “F*** knows pal, you?”
He then added: “We’re getting f***** the night too.”
A friend tweeted back: “You’re off the rails mate!” to which Billy responded: “Decent”.
A week earlier, Billy had informed his friends on the social networking site that he was “still minced, man”.
He added: “Can’t think about giving it up.”
The Robson family are said to be distraught at the death of their son and his brother, Sean, posting a tribute on his Facebook page.
It read: “Not everyday you have to say good bye to your little brother and won’t get to see him again!!! Rip Billy love you xx”
Dad Stuart, aged 42 and now living in London, said: “Billy was a bright, fun, outgoing lad. He left Kelso High School last year and was studying agriculture – he had his whole life ahead of him.
“I spoke to him last week on Facebook – he was a keen rugby player.
A Lothian and Borders Police spokeswoman said: “We are investigating following the death of a 16-year-old male within Borders General Hospital on Tuesday, October 23.
“Inquiries are ongoing to determine the circumstances surrounding the death.”
