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.

Police Find Meth Chemical Cache in Wheaton Townhouse (Washington DC)

By Aruna Jain

Montgomery County police said yesterday that they found several gallons of chemicals used to make methamphetamine and the so-called date-rape drug GHB in a vacated townhouse in a new Wheaton development.

Local, state and federal law enforcement officials converged on the residence in the 11000 block of Amherst Avenue after the owner discovered five-gallon containers filled with chemicals about 11 a.m. Saturday.

The owner discovered the chemicals when he went to clean the house, which had been vacated by a renter, police officials said. Police declined yesterday to release the names of the owner, who is not a suspect, and the renter.

"Hopefully, we'll be able to arrest the past resident pretty soon," said Lt. Eric Burnett, a county police spokesman.

Maryland property records indicate that the owners of the townhouse are Craig and Julie Frick of Gaithersburg. They could not be reached for comment
