Why are drug dealers allowed to get away with murder?  Drug addiction is a National epidemic that affects everyone and drug overdose deaths are at historical highs and climbing  We are fighting for a National Law for Drug-Induced Homicide, which includes all 50 United States where police and detectives must treat every single overdose death as a crime scene. The use and sale of any controlled substance is illegal and warrant a criminal investigation. Every drug toxicity death should be treated as a crime scene in every single town, county, and state, uniformly. Identification and inventory of all evidence, narcotics and narcotic paraphernalia including needles and drug packets for brand identification and fingerprints on scene should be inventoried, cellular phones inventoried and processed, all social media pages preserved and witnesses questioned.  

Jessica was a beautiful, loving 26 year old gymnast and head cheerleader who suffered from PTSD after the devastating overdose loss of her 22 year old brother, Shawn in 2012. Shawn was an innocent victim of the overprescribing of OxyContin. After years of therapy and trying to find her peace Jessica was poisoned by Fentanyl in September 2018.  At Jessica’s crime scene were  her phone and stamped heroin packets. On her phone were numerous texts from the dealer telling her which exact corners to meet him on, 2 phone numbers that he texted her from and the map showing her exact arrival time on those corners. The last text from him was “Fiji. Watch blue packet”. That text was too late. Jessica had already overdosed from the fentanyl that he knowingly sold her. Police took nothing as evidence at the scene. The packets were thrown away and the phone was given to me, her mother. After immediately going through her phone and seeing the evidence I brought the phone to the police department and met with several detectives and a prosecutor.  I even provided them with the name and phone number of a witness. They kept the phone for weeks and did nothing. They never even questioned the dealer. If they had collected the drug packets for fingerprints and the stamp “Fiji” and used the evidence on her phone, this “murderer” would have been arrested for causing the Drug-Induced Homicide of Jessica and one less dealer would be on the streets. 

Even though N.J., where Jessica overdosed,  has a Drug Liability Death Law, the detectives say that it’s impossible to prove. Some counties prosecute and some do not. Every single county, in every single state should be on the same page and should all treat drug overdoses as homicides. A homicide is murder at the hands of another.  Police in every county, in every state, should be lawfully required to collect all evidence and investigate it as a crime scene. Death is a crime in any state and all states should have the same laws.  If the police would have collected every piece of evidence at the scene, this drug dealer would have been brought in for questioning, arrested and taken off the streets. Drug deaths are criminal and warrant a criminal investigation which should result in an arrest and prosecution for the dealer and or all persons involved in selling and dealing death. Let's stop drug dealers from getting away with murdering our children!
