Meth High Leads Two to Death

A tragic story out of Iowa, where a young couple froze to death while high on meth. They called 911 but were unable to relay their whereabouts to the police because their state of mind was so addled by the drug. Police subsequently arrested a mother and son in connection to the death. They possibly supplied the young couple with the drug.

Read the tragic story in the Iowa World Herald here. Here's an excerpt:

Sometime the night of Jan. 5 as Janelle Hornickel and Michael Wamsley made call after call to 911, a Sarpy County sheriff's deputy discovered footprints in the snow.

The footprints were near the gate to the old Lyman-Richey gravel pit in western Sarpy County.

The deputy followed the tracks, which were filling with snow, onto the gravel pit property until they disappeared near a frozen pond, said Sarpy County Chief Deputy Jeff Davis.

The deputy walked a quarter of a mile around a machine shed on the property and around a trailer. But he found no sign of the couple, who authorities said Friday were under the influence of methamphetamine when they froze to death in the snow.
