This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Last of six drug defendants pleads innocent (North Dakota)

Associated Press FARGO, N.D. -

The last of six defendants named in a drug trafficking conspiracy here has pleaded innocent.
Lacey Johnson, 18, of Fargo, entered her plea in U.S. District Court on Wednesday. She is charged with conspiracy to sell methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana as part of a trafficking ring dating back to January 2002, and possessing meth and marijuana with the intent to sell it.
All the defendants face up to life in prison if convicted. Michael Petzold, 23, of Norfolk, Neb. - the only one of the defendants facing a murder charge - could face the death penalty if Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez approves it.
Petzold is accused of killing Lee Avila, 28, of East Grand Forks, Minn., in what authorities say was a drug-related crime.
No trial date has been set for any of the defendants.
