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.

Marks on toddler found in meth lab turn out to be bug bites (Tennessee)

An 18 month old Knoxville boy is in the care of his grandparents after being rushed to Children's Hospital with what appeared to be chemical burns on his back. It turns out the marks were just bug bites.

Police say they were concerned about the marks on the toddler's back because they found the child in a raid on a meth lab in a South Knox home Monday night.

The boy's mother, 34 year old Krystal Lynn Hodgson is charged with manufacturing meth and aggravated child abuse.

Her boyfriend, 31 year old Kevin Wayne Price faces the same drug charge.

Tom Spangler, Chief Deputy with the Knox County Sheriff Department says, "These people here obviously thought they were getting away with something until last night."

Investigators say a local store helped tip them off that the couple was buying large quantities of the elements needed to make the drug.

They found the chemicals and utensils in three parts of the home. They also found the 18 month old baby.
