A family friend of a young Queensland man who died after taking drugs at a festival north of Sydney, says his relatives and friends are devastated.
22-year-old Joshua Tam from Brisbane died after taking an unknown substance at the Lost Paradise music festival in Glenworth Valley.
Anne is a close family friend and has called in to speak with John Stanley, telling him Josh was a talented athlete with a loving family.
“You couldn’t wish for better family, honestly,” she says.
Anne says she grew up with Joshua’s mother in the same neighbourhood in Brisbane.
