Merriweather Post block party: Cops say ‘Molly’ likely at fault; 2nd death at traveling dope show

Howard County police have confirmed the death of a concertgoer who attended the all-day Mad Decent Block Party at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia yesterday.

Tyler Fox Viscardi, 20, of Raleigh, N.C., was transported by the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services just after 9 p.m. He was pronounced dead a short time after arriving at Howard County General Hospital. Preliminarily, it appears his death was the result of a drug overdose. Officials are still
working to determine what type of drugs were in his system.

Fire department personnel also transported a 17-year-old male from Woodbridge, Va., who appeared to be suffering from an overdose. He is currently in critical condition at the same hospital. It does not appear that the two young men knew one another.
