Second Victim Dies After Taking Designer Drug In Konawa
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Seminole County authorities said a second person has died after taking the drug first thought to be 2C-E at a home in Konawa last weekend.
Andrew Akerman has been listed in critical condition since taking the drug, but authorities said he died Friday morning.
Investigators said eight people took the powerful hallucinogenic, which has similar effects to ecstasy, at a home in Konawa on May 7.
After chemical analysis of the drug, officials now believe the actual substance was another powerfully-hallucinogenic designer drug know as Bromo-DragonFLY.
Stacy Jewell, 22, died after taking the drug. The other seven were injured. The young adults obtained the drug from Cody Weddle, 20, who, investigators with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said, bought the drug off the Internet. He was arrested on a first-degree murder complaint in Jewell's death, but the D.A.'s office said they are still deciding what charges they plan to file.
