A 20-year-old student who was obsessed with her weight died after repeatedly taking apple cider vinegar.

Lindsey Bone, 20, was found dead by friends in her bedroom in Brighton, where she lived while studying at the University of Sussex.

Police say her death is still a mystery, but Lindsey’s mother warned the girls and young people to give up extreme methods of losing weight, citing the cause she thinks led her daughter to lose her life.

The young woman had started a strict diet for herself, including giving up food and drinking apple cider vinegar pills.
