Travis Barber death: Stockport man arrested on suspicion of supplying class A drugs to Salford teen

By Matt Davies

A man has been arrested on suspicion of supplying class A drugs after a Salford teenager was found dead at his home.

Travis Barber, 19, was found at his house on Lightoaks Road, Salford, on Sunday February 17 and police launched an investigation to establish the circumstances.

As a result, a 33-year old Stockport man has been bailed until June 26 2013 on suspicion of supplying Barber with drugs prior to his death.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Jackson said: “This was an alarming and tragic incident where a young man has sadly lost his life and our thoughts are with his family.

“We are continuing our investigation to establish the full circumstances leading to his death.”

A Home Office post-mortem examination was unable to determine the exact cause of death but suggested Barber’s injuries were consistent with an adverse reaction to drug use.

His death is not being treated as suspicious and the matter has been passed onto a coroner with an inquest due to take place.

A 36-year-old Stockport man was also arrested but has since been released without charge.
