Agents Assist in Drug Overdose Case
A 911 call was made from 13491 Highway 9A in Konawa at approximately 1:30 Saturday morning regarding drug overdoses of more than a half dozen individuals. When law enforcement arrived to the scene, they discovered eight people ranging in age from 19 to their early 20s suffering from severe drug toxicity from the drug 2C-E. This drug is described as something similar to ecstasy.
One victim was transported to Integris Hospital in Seminole were she was pronounced dead. Three were taken to Valley View Regional Hospital in Ada. And four were flown to Norman Regional Hospital. At least two of the victims are in very critical condition. OSBI does not have the conditions of the other individuals.
Before noon Saturday, members of the District 22 Drug Task Force arrested Cody Weddle (d.o.b. 6-23-90) at the hospital in Ada. He was there to visit one of the victims. Weddle was arrested on a complaint of conspiracy and first degree murder. He was booked into the jail in Pontotoc County. Investigators believe he supplied the 2C-E to the people at the party.
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance. Pontotoc County Sheriff’s Office and the Ada Police Department have also aided in this case.
