    Peru - Kyle Nolan, 18, dies after taking ayahuasca in the Amazon, Aug 2012

    US Teen Dies After Amazon Psychedelic Ritual (Sky News)
    A shaman has admitted trying to cover up the death of an American teenager who died after eating an hallucinogenic plant by burying him in the grounds of his Amazon retreat.

    Kyle Nolan, 18, died after drinking extracts of a psychedelic plant called ayahuasca during a ritual in the Madre de Dios jungle region of Peru.
    Jose Manuel Pineda Vargas, 58, later confessed to burying him in the grounds of the retreat.
    For centuries, Amazonian Indians have been drinking ayahuasca - a combination of the ayahuasca vine, tree bark and other plants - to achieve a trance-like state.

    It is traditionally drunk in indigenous ceremonies in the presence of a shaman, and has become popular with New Age tourists from Europe and the US.

    From October 2014:


    Piñeda was eventually convicted of homicide and lying to authorities, and sentenced to five years in prison, according to local Peruvian media.

    Kyle's body was eventually brought back to California where Oswald said another autopsy also came up inconclusive, and he was cremated...

    There's no conclusive evidence of what killed Kyle, Oswald said. "The only thing there is possibly out there is maybe the toxicology (results), but I can't get that unless I go back to Peru."
