Boyfriend or Marquess of Queensberry & # 39; s daughter, 18, who died after drug shortage, the family blames him
Jenan Herzog Karagoli, 21-year-old friend of Lady Beth, has admitted he is too far away & # 39; was to save her
The friend of an 18-year-old aristocrat who died after a two-day drug and alcohol failure revealed how her heartbroken father told him: "You could have taken better care of her."
In an exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday, Jenan Herzog Karagoli described how the Marquis of Queensberry confronted him after his youngest daughter, Lady Beth Douglas, was found dead in a filthy apartment.
& # 39; He told me that I could have taken better care of her. I felt that her family blamed me. I felt like I could have done something, "Karagoli said.
The 21-year-old also revealed how their relationship revolved around cocaine and that Beth – known as Ling Ling to friends and family – had a history of self-harm.
The tragedy came to the fore last week after a court investigation revealed how the teenager – a talented musician from one of Britain's foremost aristocratic families – had been found unconscious with needle marks in her arm after taking cocaine and heroin.
Last night Karagoli insisted that he had done everything he could to save Beth after being unconscious at a house party in the early hours of March 7.

The couple, who had been together for ten months, had gone to the flat in Notting Hill, West London, close to the flat they shared with his mother in the iconic landmark Trellick Tower.
Karagoli described how he briefly left the party to buy a bottle of wine, but when he returned he noticed that his girlfriend was unconscious.
He said: & # 39; I saw her lying on the couch. I had a bottle of red wine in my hand and there was a man next to us with a bottle of Hennessy.
I just clashed with her on the couch. She seemed comfortable, so I joined her and fell asleep. I woke up at 1.30 am and tried to wake her, and she did not wake up.
& # 39; She was still warm and then I started to panic. I saw this man crack and he said it's happening all the time. I asked him, "What? What happens all the time? I do not know what happened. & # 39;

& # 39; I told him to call the ambulance, and I also called an ambulance via her telephone. Then I said to him: "Here is a decade, get some cigarettes for me." Then he fled – he probably told other dealers to throw their phones. & # 39;
Karagoli added: & # 39; The ambulance lasted about 15 to 20 minutes. I tried to bring her into recovery. I tried to resuscitate her, the ambulance brothers tried to perform CPR. They said she had died on the spot. & # 39;
Two weeks later Beth was cremated during a Buddhist ceremony in London. Days later, Karagoli was confronted with her father David Douglas, the 88-year-old 12th Marquis of Queensberry.
Karagoli claims he did not know what happened that night, but admits that his own drug-addicted state may have influenced how he could have helped Beth.

He said: "David said that I could have been more aware and take care of her. I respect that completely – I have nothing in store for that.
& # 39; I am fully convinced that I could have done more, but unfortunately I was too far away at the time. & # 39;
Karagoli also told The Mail on Sunday that Beth had recently upgraded to an online dominatrix via Twitter to advertise its services.
In the months leading up to her death, she placed a series of disturbing selfies and videos, including some of her half-naked. Others seem to show her under the influence of drugs.
She also offered to play naked & # 39; on Skype for £ 20 and tried to sell her underwear. Most other messages are too explicit to be included in a family newspaper.
Both of the couple's e-mail addresses have been publicly posted for use by customers when sending payments. Granted that he was aware of the services, Karagoli said: "It was funny.
She would send people photo's, which was fun, and as a reward [told them]"You're going to send me money." She made about £ 500 of the whole thing. She has run it for two to three months. & # 39;
He denies that he personally took one of the funds collected by her.

And he revealed that their relationship revolved around cocaine right from the start, and added: "During the first few months, everything was flowery. We took cocaine and went to parties. We did not take cocaine daily, but every other day. & # 39;
Last week's research at Westminster Coroner's Court found that Beth had a history of drug and alcohol addiction and was known to psychiatric care workers when she started to harm herself when she was 13 years old. At age 17 she was segmented under the Mental Health Act.
At the hearing, the Marquis said he knew that his daughter had a history of drug use, but that he did not believe she had previously injected heroin. He also criticized the police for not being able to identify the dealer who sold the lethal medicine.
The inquest reported cardiac respiratory insufficiency and cocaine and heroin poisoning as the cause of death. Coroner Dr Shirley Radcliffe said: "The police found no needles or syringes. As far as they are concerned, there is no further action that they can take. & # 39;
