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.

Urban invasion of meth coming (Indiana)

Message gets out at town meeting

Methamphetamine production and use may be a bigger problem in southern and rural parts of Indiana, but state and local officials want to be prepared for an urban invasion that they say is already happening.

That was part of the message at a town hall meeting Wednesday night at Indiana Tech. About 30 people attended the event sponsored by the Drug & Alcohol Consortium of Allen County.

“We want to make sure Fort Wayne and Allen County (are) prepared,” said Mike Cunegin, a Fort Wayne police sergeant and Allen County councilman. “We want to give out as much information as we can to make sure we’re well-prepared and don’t get blindsided like we did a few years ago (by crack).”

Daryl Hall, director of programs for the Indiana Department of Correction, talked about what meth is and why some people use it.
