Wisconsin Mother Teaches Son How to Use Heroin - Son Overdoses and Dies

According to JournalTimes.com a mother, Patricia Strosina, a 46-year-old woman in Waterford, Wisconsin was charged after she allegedly taught her 16-year-old son Raymond how to shoot heroin, which resulted in his death. During the investigation witnesses, primarily drug users and dealers, told the Sheriff's Department that they saw her buying heroin for herself and her 16 year old son. An autopsy determined Raymond died from respiratory arrest from a mixed drug overdose from heroin and cocaine. Strosina remains in the Racine County Jail on $15,000 cash bond.

Does this make you sick or what?

Oh Dear Lord! I am just speechless and disgusted.

Yes, it does. Beyond belief. That's how sick drug addiction can be. It's totally selfish and destroys everything in it's wake. She will have to live with that for as long as she loves-- and beyond, on the "other side".

My God. It's tragic enough when addicts have parent's that CARE about them getting clean. I cannot begin to understand

Last week I read in an article that Wisconsin is a place where addiction disorder and illicit drug use is in an increase rate. But this news is really annoying me. I couldn't believe my ears. How could a mother be so cruel?
God must save the world. That is all I think right now.

This is a very sad story. Yet I'm sure this kind of thing happens more than we want to know.

I found your blog by accident. I was trying to click on a comment on another blog and clicked on your name instead. I'm glad I did. I don't believe in accidents. I'm a member of Al-Anon, my daughter is the loved one who got me here.

It's nice to meet you. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.

Do you know of any updates on this story? Was she convicted? What was her sentence?

My Daughter's Addiction said...

Strosina received eight years in prison and ten years of extended supervision for intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a child, leading to death.

So a 16 year old was speedballing heroin and coke, quite possibly.

Oh what a loving, responsible mother.

Fucking stupid cow.

What on earth a mother would teach his son to take or use drugs! Are she out of her mind. Maybe she is a crazy mother who really want to kill his sun. I never knew there are mother who will be the cause of his son's death. She must sick in the first place she must admitted on a malibu drug treatment or better yet to a mental hospital.
