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.

Meth lab found in Milton (West Virginia)

MILTON-- Milton police broke up a methamphetamine lab Monday after receiving an anonymous tip from a community member.

Police arrived at the residence in the 1400 block of Glenwood Street about 9 p.m. and asked a man there to search his trailer. But the man refused.

"When we opened the door, you could smell a strong amount of chemicals coming from inside," said Milton Police Chief Gregg Mullins. "From that point, we contacted members of the Huntington Drug & Violent Crime Task Force and obtained a search warrant by 11:08 p.m. that night."

When police returned to the residence with a search warrant, the man was gone.

Mullins said a warrant has been issued for Gregory Conley, who police believe was living in the trailer. A warrant also is being developed for a female, who police believe left the residence with Conley. Mullins said they believe the suspect has been convicted previously on similar charges and is in violation of his parole.

While searching the trailer, police found a meth lab in one of the bedrooms, drug paraphernalia and paper work that indicate connections to Detroit.

"This is our third bust this week so it's (meth labs) becoming a very serious problem," Mullins said.
