Pill popping Breeder ODs behind wheel with 4-year-old in the car

Pill popping breeder ODs behind wheel with 4-year-old in the car

Colleen Nichols

30-year-old Colleen Nichols was allegedly found behind the wheel of her vehicle after overdosing on prescription pills in Boca Raton, Florida. In the back of the vehicle was her 4-year-old daughter who just wanted to go her preschool. It doesn’t sound like the car was involved in any kind of collision, thankfully. However, the vehicle was unlocked with Nichols slumped over the wheel. A witness called 911 and EMT’s had to use Narcan to revive her. Reports say Nichols took an almost 30 day supply of Klonipin in a little over a day. After Nichols returned to consciousness, first responders asked her where she thought her daughter was and Nichols was said to have responded by saying: “I don’t know, I must have blacked out, I’m under a lot of stress.”

How much ‘stress’ do you have to be under to take a month’s worth of Klonipin in less than a two-day period? Unless you’re a four-fingered member of a bomb squad in Afghanistan, you’re not under that much stress. Then again, it’s a common characteristic of drug addicts to blame everyone but themselves for their behavior. They tell the most outlandish lies in order to try to get their fix and expect you to believe them. In too many cases, addicts don’t care who the repercussions of their actions affect, even if it’s their own children.

Prescription drug abuse is now the worst drug abuse problem in the U.S. today. Unfortunately, most addicts don’t think they have a problem, and can’t start recovering until they do. The Mayo Clinic website has a detailed guide on how to stage an intervention in case a loved one has a substance abuse problem.

McHeroin, I'm lovin' it

Robert Paul Palmer and Tamica Lynn Jeffers

Parents overdose on heroin at McDonald’s as kids, 5 and 8, play at restaurant’s PlayPlace: Outrage?:

Cops: Parents shoot up heroin while kids play at McDonald’s:

Here’s a scene I’m sure a lot of us are familiar with. You’re getting a touch of cabin fever and want to get you, your significant other and most importantly your kids out of the house for a little while. The thing is you don’t have a lot of cash for an expensive day out like a movie or an amusement park. Instead you scrape up what little cash you have and take everyone to McDonald’s for some dollar menu burgers and the kids can play in the play center. Everybody is having such a good time that you and your squeeze decide to shoot up. Wait, what? Go back a second. What the fuck? No one does that. Who the hell shoots up heroin in a McDonald’s while their kids are in the ball pit?

According to police in Green Township, Ohio, that’s exactly what Robert Paul Palmer, 37, and Tamica Lynn Jeffers, 33, from Indiana allegedly did. Not only did they shoot up in McDonald’s but they both overdosed to the point that reports are calling them life threatening overdoses. Luckily the children, ages 8 and 5 were unharmed you know, except for the trauma of seeing their parents OD’d and arrested.

I wonder if they asked for a moist towelette so they could keep the needle clean.

Thanks to Helen for the tip.

Methadone in a sippy cup

Jill Goff

Utah mother charged with child abuse homicide after her son overdoses:

Tooele 2-year-old dies after mom gave him methadone, police say:

32-year-old Jill Goff of Tooele, Utah has been charged with homicide after her 2-year-old son, Aiden Goff, ingested methadone and died.

Goff allegedly kept the methadone in a Gatorade bottle between her bed and the wall. She claims she poured the liquid into Aiden’s sippy cup and gave it to him. She then gave it to her other kids ages 5 and 8. When the 8-year-old complained that the drink tasted like medicine it was only then that Goff realized she gave the kids methadone. Sounds like an inadvertent accident right? Where’s the malice you ask?

Instead of calling 911 she tried to get Aiden to vomit and then took a nap with him. She said she didn’t call 911 at first because she was scared. Probably scared of being arrested. As usual the fear of arrest outweighs the well-being of a child. Now instead of a neglect charge she’s been charged with murder.

Let that be a lesson. Would you rather go to jail for a little bit and have live children or go to jail possibly for life and have a dead child on your conscience. Think about it.

Deanna Ballman’s craigslist killer pleads guilty

Former Ohio doctor pleads guilty in heroin death of expectant mom who answered Craigslist ad:

Ali Salim

I originally posted about the murder of Deanna Ballman here. She was the pregnant Ohio mother of two who died after responding to a craigslist ad placed by Dr. Ali Salim. Salim is believed to have raped her and injected her with heroin causing a fatal overdose. You can read the rest of the details in my original post.

This past week Salim pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse, but pleaded no freakin’ contest to the rape charge. A no contest plea basically says that the suspect doesn’t admit to the crime but admits that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him for the crime. Essentially it’s a guilty plea without admitting guilt. Typical for this arrogant prick. It’s not like pleading no contest to the rape is going to keep your ass out of jail for a long time.

Also Ballman’s family is not only suing Salim for the wrongful death of Deanna but they’re suing craigslist as well. I wonder how many bodies it will take before craigslist starts monitoring their site.

No drama: The craigslist killing of Deanna Ballman

Ohio doctor charged in pregnant woman’s death:

US Doctor ‘Raped and Killed’ Pregnant Deanna Ballman Lured with Bogus Craiglist Ad:

Ohio doctor charged with raping, killing expectant mother who answered personal ad:

Ohio Doctor Accused Of Rape, Injecting Pregnant Woman With Heroin:

I’ve been aware of the alleged murder of Deanna Ballman since it first made the news. At the time it was suspected that a craigslist ad was involved her death but was never confirmed to my satisfaction until recently. Ms. Ballman’s alleged killer, one Dr. Ali Salim, was recently indicted and details leading up to Deanna Ballman’s murder have been released.

Back on July 31st of 2012 Deanna Ballman went missing in Ohio after telling her family that she was responding to a craigslist ad for housecleaning. Ms. Ballman’s body was found in her car the next day in the back seat of her car on a back road. The autopsy revealed that she had died from a heroin overdose and that there was evidence of a rape. She was also nine months pregnant at the time of her murder. On the day she disappeared Ms. Ballman called her mother to tell her mother that she felt dizzy. Reports say the phone went dead before a man with a foreign accent could be heard asking if there was anything he could do before the call ended.

The man with the foreign accent and Deanna’s accused killer is believed to be 44-year-old Dr. Ali Salim, formerly of Pakistan. That will be the last time I refer to him as a doctor because for what he’s allegedly done he does not deserve the title, he only has the title in the same way that Josef Mengele does.

It seems that Salim has a history of predatory behavior when it came to craigslist and women. In one instance Salim placed an ad asking for a model so he could paint the digestive system on her abdomen. The model showed up with a male relative and she turned down the job when he insisted that the man not accompany them. In another instance, a woman called 911 from Salim’s house saying that she had been accosted after replying to one of Salim’s ads. Another woman came forward after the death of Deanna Ballman saying that she had been sexually assaulted. In the most telling story, to me at least, Salim had once called police saying that a ‘heroin addict’ that he had been ‘helping’ broke into his home and stole several high price items but then he refused to cooperate with police. All his ads stressed the same thing though, no drama. You know it’s kind of hard not to have drama when you’re bringing victims back to your house to rape and possibly inject them with heroin.

What is known about the ad that Deanna Ballman replied to was not an ad for housecleaning and is believed to be a personal ad of some kind. Before her murder, she had recently moved to Ohio to be with her family after separating from her husband. In addition to being pregnant, she also had two young children. It’s believed that she kept the true purpose of the ad from her family out of shame.

The reason I bring this up is because of Salim’s defense. His scummy lawyer, as scummy lawyers are wont to do, is claiming that Deanna was a prostitute with a heroin addiction. How convenient. However, police and prosecutors say that there is no evidence that Deanna had any kind of drug problem.

Salim was arrested back in February after a six-month investigation, is being held on $1M bond and is facing trial in the fall. No word yet if Salim will be facing the death penalty for the murder of Deanna and her unborn daughter who was to be named Mabel Lilly.

Scum like Salim make me sick. They think that due to their money and position that they can indulge in whatever sick little fantasy their diseased minds can conjure up with no regard to their victims. Deanna Ballman was a mother, sister, and daughter who had people who loved her and you took that away just so you could get off on whatever sick power trip you were on. I hope that you do receive the death penalty but for once I want it to be years before they execute you. I want you to feel what it’s like to be under someone else’s power whether it be the Ohio department of corrections or other inmates. I want you to know every day what it feels like to have everything taken from you until the day they take the very last thing from you, your life.

I know this is belated and I apologize but my prayers and condolences go out to the family and friends of Deanna Ballman and Mabel Lilly.

Breeder hides in trailer to avoid sentencing in baby sitter’s death

Ashley Jackson

Woman Who Skipped Sentencing For Child Abuse Arrested:

Woman who missed sentencing in overdose death found in trailer:

24-year-old Ashley Jackson was supposed to be sentenced in the death of 12-year-old Serena Garrett. Jackson brought the girl to her home in Lincoln, Nebraska to baby sit her twin infants. Sounds like the responsible thing to do right? Well, Jackson brought Serena to her home sop Jackson could smoke meth with her friends. She also supplied Serena and her other guests with booze and painkillers. Apparently Jackson really didn’t grasp the concept of a baby sitter. Serena was not only sexually assaulted by a 20-year-old party goer but she died of an overdose of painkillers.

In December Jackson pleaded no contest to Serena’s death but when it came time to be sentenced Jackson allegedly no showed the hearing. Police found her last night hiding in a trailer (go figure) that was parked on the property of a construction equipment company.

Unfortunately Jackson is only looking at five years for Serena’s death. Back in the 1950s you could be eligible for the death penalty if you were a drug dealer and someone died from your drugs. We should never have stopped that practice.

UK toddler dies after drinking mother’s methadone

Riley Pettipierre

Riley Pettipierre

Toddler ‘died after drinking methadone from child’s beaker left in bedroom shared with his father and drug addict mother’:

The adorable face you see above is that of two-year old Riley Pettipierre, who lived in Derbyshire, England. Last March, Riley’s ‘mother’ Sally Dent awoke to find her son unresponsive in bed. His lips were blue and he wasn’t breathing. He was rushed to hospital but sadly, died shortly after arrival. An autopsy later revealed that Riley had consumed between 10 and 20ml of Methadone. Turns out, Sally Dent had a ‘history of drug use going back many years’ and had been prescribed Methadone to help her kick a heroin habit. Yesterday, Sally and Riley’s father, Shaun Binfield, were both found guilty of manslaughter and cruelty to a child. Turns out, these mouth breathers thought it would be perfectly safe to leave a CHILD’S BEAKER full of Methadone on top of a chest of drawers in their toddler sons bedroom. Why? So it could be in ‘easy reach’ of Sally. Yeah, it was in easy reach of their son, too. That just makes a terrible situation even more outrageous. They KNEW the cup was there and yet they didn’t move it and still allowed Riley into the room unsupervised. Riley did what any toddler would do. He probably drank from the cup thinking it was juice, not something that could, and did, take his tragically short life. The judge has adjourned sentencing until the 19th of February. Personally, I hope they throw away the key, as it was entirely their fault Riley died, but I know it’s a futile hope.

What class acts. I’d just love it if someone would wipe that stupidly smug look off her face.

Morphine Mom kills baby through breast milk

Why yes I am an addict. Why do you ask?

SC police: Baby died from morphine in breast milk:

Drugs In Mom’s Breast Milk Blamed In Baby’s Death:

Let’s see. In the last 3 posts we’ve had booze, meth and weed. Hell, let’s throw some morphine into the mix for good measure.

In Spartanburg County, South Carolina police there have arrested 37-year-old Stephanie Greene for the November, 2010 death of her 6-week-old daughter Alexis.

Investigators say that she had so much morphine in her system that it passed a lethal level of morphine to her daughter through her breast milk. According to at least one expert that’s an incredibly difficult feat…

Breast-feeding mothers are allowed to take morphine because low levels of the painkiller pass into the mother’s milk when taken properly, said Diana West, a spokeswoman for La Leche League International, which encourages breast-feeding in new mothers.

“Most drugs like morphine pass so poorly through human milk that it is nearly impossible for a child to have a therapeutic dose, much less a lethal dose,” West said.

Greene is accused of illegally obtaining morphine in one form or another 38 times all from the same pharmacy. Check out her grocery list for the past 2 years…

Fentanyl – Pain med that comes in Patch form. Often given to people who suffer from constant pain.

Duragesic – Pain med along the same type as Fentanyl.

Morphene – In pill form

Hydrocodon – also known as Vicoprofen

Shit like this rubs me the wrong way horribly for two reasons. The first is my wife has a constant pain disorder and it takes almost an act of God for her to get any kind of pain killers. The second is that I used to work at a pharmacy. Granted this was 20 years ago but even then we had pill poppers constantly coming in to the store trying to get refills of Percocet. Back then it was illegal to issue a prescription for Percocet that included refills. Even back then we had a stringent check for prescription abuse. I would imagine that it’s even more stringent today with everything being computerized the way it is yet she was still able to illegally obtain morphine 38 times at the same pharmacy. It sounds like to me that she may have had an inside connection at the pharmacy.

And lastly and most importantly a child who never had a chance at life is dead all because this slag had to get her fix.

‘They’ should see how many of those Fentanyl patches they can fit on her before she croaks. I hear opiate overdose is a nasty way to go.

The sad part is she’s looking at more time for the drugs than she is for the death of her own daughter.

Thanks to Jennifer and LeeLee for the tips.

Ky. Breeders plead guilty to OD death of daughter

Some folks'll never lose a toe then there's some folk'll

Couple sentenced in toddler’s death:

Ma and Pa Kettle over there are Carrie E. Brummett, 38, and Rondall J. Mosley, 43, both of Kentucky. That’s pretty rough looking for 38. She looks almost twice that. Anyway the pair were arrested back in March for the accidental overdose death of their daughter, 2-year-old Kayla Elizabeth Mosley.

Police believe that the child somehow gained access to and ingested prescription pills.

I’m guessing the prescription wasn’t for antibiotics.

Both have pleaded guilty and have been sentenced to 8 to 10 years.

I know I’ve been picking on a lot of different states lately, mostly WV, but it seems that Kentucky is too frequent of a state here on BB. From some friends of mine that grew up in Kentucky it seems that denizens like Brummett and Mosely are not too out of the ordinary.

Pa. man OD’d son on methadone

Toddler dies of overdose, dad jailed:

On March 17th a 911 call was received by authorities in Charlestown Township, Penn. As too usual in these cases a child was unresponsive. I’m really beginning to hate the word ‘unresponsive’ but I digress. The 23-month-old son of Ian Joseph Kohn was the one who was unresponsive. He was pronounced deat at the hospital.

Police searched the house and found syringes in methadone in the room that Kohn and the baby shared. An autopsy revealed that the baby died from a methadone OD.

Investigators say Kohn mixed methadone and, sometimes, sleeping pills in the child’s bottle with Gatorade and gave it to his son to drink.

Although the article doesn’t say why Kohn allegedly gave the methadone to his son I would lay odds that it was either because the child cried, wouldn’t go to sleep or both.

In case you’re wondering where the baby mama was she was already in jail on unrelated charges.
