Synthetic Drugs

May 26, 2018
Timothy LaMere, 28, was thrust into the public spotlight in 2011 after supplying drugs at a Blaine house-party that wound up killing his best friend. LaMere was convicted of third-degree murder in 19-year-old Trevor Robinson's death and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Less than a year after his release, LaMere died unexpectedly last month from cardiac arrest due to natural causes. Courtesy of Cathy LaMere
