DEATH * BY * METH

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.

A Scott County man was convicted Tuesday of helping murder a woman who overdosed on methamphetamine while in his hot tub in March.

A Scott County man was convicted Tuesday of helping murder a woman who overdosed on methamphetamine while in his hot tub in March.
Gary Schwich, 53, of Spring Lake Township, was convicted of abetting unintentional murder by providing meth; second-degree manslaughter, and fifth-degree meth possession. Authorities said the conviction is Scott County's first in a meth-related homicide.

The jury found that victim Alicia Sue Hackbarth, 43, was particularly vulnerable, and prosecutors will seek more than the seven-year, two-month prison sentence suggested by state guidelines when Schwich is sentenced in April, County Attorney Patrick Ciliberto said.

Jeanne C. Stone, 40, testified that Schwich mixed up a syringe of meth for her to inject into Hackbarth's arm. Stone testified as part of a plea agreement.
