Rumors swirled following the death of one and hospitalization of seven others Saturday night that a Roff resident who died that same night may have attended a party where lethal drugs were ingested.
Jeffery Walls, 29, Roff, was found dead at his residence but it is unclear if he was at the party east of Konawa where the drug 2C-E was distributed. It is being blamed for killing 22-year-old Anastasia Jewell of Ada. Cody Weddle, 21, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and conspiracy to distribute a synthetic substance. He is suspected of buying the drug over the Internet and sending it to the party for distribution.
Cherokee Ballard, public information officer for the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office, said Wednesday tests will be conducted to determine whether or not Walls’ death resulted from taking 2C-E.
She said no cause or manner of death has been determined and it could be two to six weeks before test results are in.
Walls’ funeral service was scheduled for today at 2 p.m. at Criswell Funeral Home.
A spokesperson for Valley View Regional Hospital said Tuesday that Andrew Ackerman remains in critical condition, Garrett Minitre is in serious condition and Madison Wolf is in fair condition. All three are said to have attended the party.
