GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) — Two people are in custody after a 16-year-old Center Grove boy was found dead in his friend’s home with a synthetic drug next to his body, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office announced on Thursday.

Samuel Motsay was found dead in a home in the Eagles Trace subdivision on May 11 with what, at the time, police called an unknown substance nearby. Analysis from the Indiana State Police indicated the substance was 25I-NBOMe.


Investigators looked through Motsay’s cell phone to determine who he was interacting with before his death. Johnson County Sheriff’s Office officials have connected 24-year-old Kyle Hazzard, of Greenwood, 19-year-old Jordan Adamowicz, of Indianapolis and 24-year-old Zachery Catron, of Indianapolis, to the case.

A search of Catron’s home revealed the same synthetic drug found next to Motsay’s body — on blotting paper. Catron was arrested on unknown preliminary charges. He was out on bond from a drug dealing case in Johnson County.

Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox said Kyle Hazzard turned himself into the jail Thursday evening. He was wanted on a warrant for dealing an illegal substance.

Police are still looking for Adamowicz. He’s also wanted on a warrant  for dealing an illegal substance.

NBOMe, pronounced ”N’ bomb’ can often be referred to LSD, although DEA officials say it is not one in the same. In November 2013, the DEA reported at least 17 deaths in 11 states connected to NBOMe. The drug has been found in powder form, liquid solutions, laced on edible items, and soaked onto blotter papers.
