Four charged in overdose death

On February 25 of this year, Andrew Chapman was dying of a heroin overdose.
He was lying on a bed at the Green Crest Motel in Mt. Orab, gasping for breath and coughing up blood.
As he was slowly losing his grip on life, four people were in and out of his room.
Two of them were his friends, Justin Taylor and Amanda Fields. They are the ones that supplied him the heroin. The other two were his stepfather Michael Smith and his mother, Gwen Smith.
None of them called for help until it was too late.
“If someone would have done something to help him, including his own mother and stepfather and friends who were there, he would have survived,” said Brown County Prosecutor Zac Corbin.

  1. So do you think the “resource” team that the county is putting together would have changed the outcome of this situation? I BELIEVE this is SAD. I BELIEVE these people are trapped in this addiction. I also BELIEVE they didn’t want their son to die. Now he passed and now what? All of the people partying with him that night get punished. I dont think any of it is right. I think its sad all the way around. Now if the Smiths new there was a resource team that could come save their son with narcan or whatever…WITHOUT consequences FOR PARTYING with some one whom was dyin from the product..I BELIEVE ANYONE WOULD CALL TO SAVE SOME ONE. But they are high and their decisions are impaired an everyone knows someone is going to jail. People will try to cover it up… set the house on fire, leave small children with dead loved ones, it whatever…just to avoid involving the authorities. To much to lose for the ones alive left there.
