A 17 year old Utah teen, who was involved in the overdose death of two Park City boys in 2016, was arrested recently for again ordering illegal drugs from China.
Dark Web drug order
A 17 year old female from Park City, Utah was arrested after authorities intercepted multiple shipments of illegal drugs the teen had order off the Dark Web – an anonymous online network known for illegal activity. The teen, whose name is being withheld due to her age, was charged with four second degree felonies for distribution of a controlled substance. One of those charges stemmed from the teen’s role in the overdose death of two boys in 2016.
Overdose deaths of two 13 year olds
In 2016 two Park City Utah boys were found dead after an overdose of a synthetic drug nicknamed “Pink”. The 17 year old female taken into custody this week was alleged to be involved with those boys obtaining that drug from a seller in China. Prior to the boys’ deaths, it is reported they had enlisted the help of the older teen by having her order the drugs and have them delivered to her home. She obliged, and that shipment of drugs later led to the death of the two 13 year old boys.
After the deaths of her friends, the teenage girl was open about her struggle with drug addiction; she even went as far as to speak publicly about it. Unfortunately, even though she obviously knew the risk of using drugs -especially from an unknown overseas source- her addiction was too strong and she relented to the craving. Hopefully through the charges against her she will be able to get the substance abuse rehabilitation she needs and not become another victim to the deadly epidemic of addiction sweeping the nation. Anyone, regardless of age who is looking for help with substance abuse is encouraged to call SAMHSA’s national helpline at 1-800-662-HELP. Those needing legal counsel stemming from drug charges should consult with an attorney.
