FC: Meth America's Drug Epidemic | By: Elaine Landau | Twenty-First Century Books 2008

1: Meth can effect anyone, people of every race, gender, and age. Twenty year old Janelle Hornickel, the youngest of four children had a bright future. She grew up on a farm in Nebraska. Janelle was a "traditional" girl, she loved spending time with family. Janelle was always an all-American girl. She was a cheerleader in Middle and Highschool. She did 4-H projects, had an interest in phtography, had an outstanding singing voice, and was in school plays. She attended college at Creighton University in Omaha Nebraska, she was in to sewing and baking so her nickname was "Mother of the Dorm". She also had a job at a human resources company. She then started dating a guy named Michael wamsley. They had known eachother since 7th grade. They ran into eachother at the grocery store and hit it off. Michael was a Highschool dropout. They moved in together and Janelle helped Michael get his diploma and study to become a mechanic. Everyone was happy for them until the horrible night of January 4, 2005. Michael and Janelle were heading home to their apartment in Omaha when they became trapped in a snow storm. They were pulled over at 7:30 for failing to signal, the cop asked if they were last and they said they were just a few blcoks away from home. In actuality they were in Saunders County, 120 miles away from home. About 5 hours later when they were 20 miles from home, their truck spun off the road. They were confused as to where they were, to make it worse a blizzard had set in.

2: They made their first call to 911just after midnight. They told police their truck was stuck and they were lost. Several m0re calls followed that. Even though they begged for help, no one could because they couldn't clearly tell police where they were, and their calls bounced off many different towers so police couldn't pinpoint their exact location. Janelle called 911 terrified saying that people were around her taking cars apart and hanging the parts in trees. Michael said they saw a group of Mexicans and African Americans in cult outfits. The temperature outside was 10 degrees farenheit and they weren't in their truck, they were walking around. Michael made his final call for help at 4 a.m on January 5th, he didn't know where Janelle was. their truck was found that afternoon, but they weren't there, they left their Michael's cellphone and both of their coats. Michael's body was found the next day 2 miles from the truck. Janelle's body was found 6 days later at the bank of a frozen pond. The autopsy showed they died from hypothermia, and they had Methamphetamine in their systems. That would explain why they were confused. The people Micheal and Janelle claimed they saw, were actually a herd of cattle in a pasture. If it wasn't for meth these two people with bright futures might still be alive. Is meth a drug or just a killer?
