Class Valedictorian’s Death Rocks Small Southern Community – Part 2
Apparently Samantha had decided that she needed to go to the rest room, and had excused herself. She walked from the garden where they had been sitting and past the pool when she either slipped or stumbled into the pool and drowned. Paramedics who arrived less than five minutes later pronounced her dead on the scene.
At the mention of the word ‘cops’, the party crowd dispersed, including Tobias and his friend who had brought along the Crystal Meth to get the real party started. The only people who remained were a few of the crowd who had actually not been using Crystal Meth or drinking and were able to explain to the police whose home it was, who had given the party, and exactly what happened. Tobias and his friend were arrested about two hours later, when they were found in a local park. Both Tobias and his friend were in possession of Crystal Meth and are facing jail time. Ironically, six months earlier, Tobias was also guaranteed a scholarship to the school of his choice, until he tried Crystal Meth for the first time and everything started spiraling downward.
Samantha’s family was expecting her at around midnight, and when she didn’t arrive by 12:30, they tried her cell phone. She had always been punctual and never missed a curfew. When she didn’t answer the phone they became worried, and ten minutes later their worst fears were confirmed. Two police officers arrived at their doorstep to tell them that their daughter, who was supposed to graduate in two days, had died when she’d fallen into a swimming pool and drowned after smoking Crystal Meth.
Even now, as her parents and family prepares for her funeral, they still don’t understand why Samantha would have made the choice to smoke Crystal Meth when she’d always been against drugs of any type. She was a wonderful child, never gave her parents any trouble, made excellent grades and was loved by all, but yet one wrong choice altered her mind and she ultimately paid the price and was robbed of her future.
As for Tobias, he is in jail and is facing charges for more than drug possession. At this moment he’s going through withdrawal from the Crystal Meth and his family is hoping that the courts will allow him to get into a rehabilitation facility. Once he’s clean, he’s going to have to live with his choices and the ultimate consequences of those choices for the rest of his life, while Samantha’s family try to pick up the pieces and find a way to move forward without the girl they all loved so much.
