Died from 11 bottles vodka in 10 days – same liquor store!

“Linda Smart’s son, Ashley, died in January 2021 just hours after buying his 11th bottle of vodka in 10 days — all from the same Liquorland franchise in Footscray.

Ms Smart claims he was intoxicated when he made the purchase, and not for the first time.

“He was very, very drunk. He came home with a bottle,” she told 7.30.

“I said to him, ‘Ashley, why? Why did you buy it?’ And he says, ‘Mum, they sell it to me. They don’t care.'”
