2C-E: Trevor Robinson mourned after overdose [UPDATE]

Trevor Robinson leaves behind a 5-month-old son after overdosing on 2C-E.
As some of the victims of a mass 2C-E overdose are leaving the hospital, more details are emerging about what happened before 19-year-old Trevor Robinson died.

"Trevor's the kind of guy where he likes to up his friends and do more than they can do," says Stephanie Larsin, a longtime friend. "I think he just took it too far."

The drug, also known as Europa, is a hallucinogen and is currently legal. It's a cousin of 2C-I, which is illegal. Neither substance has ever been linked to a death before.

A teenage boy decided to throw a house party in Blaine to celebrate spring break. He invited Robinson--a well-liked first-year college student--his friends, and several others. There was drinking and at some point, a guest who'd bought some 2C-E online began passing the pills around. According to Larsin, who was not at the party but spoke to several people who were, Robinson almost immediately began having trouble after taking the pill. He wasn't talking and his breathing became strained. Some say he was banging his head against the wall. Eventually, one of his friends called 911.

Another friend apparently decided to drive Robinson to Unity Hospital in Fridley. He was left in the parking lot where hospital workers found him unconscious.

Back at the party, police arrived and found that several of the people who'd taken the drug had fled. They spent some time interviewing guests who were still there to find out where they'd gone.

"It was a little chaotic," says Blaine police captain Kerry Fenner. "We had to work backward to try to find some people and check their welfare."

Ten people, between the ages of 16 and 21, were hospitalized and two were in critical condition. Doctors were not able to resuscitate Robinson and he was taken off of life support yesterday. As of this afternoon, at least nine of the other victims have been released.

Update: This afternoon, police announced they've arrested a 21-year-old man they believe is responsible for buying and distributing the 2C-E. He's being held for third-degree murder and  will be formally charged on Monday.

Andy Young, a lifelong friend of Robinson's, responded with anger.

"I hope he gets life! Trevor was my best fucking friend!" he wrote in an email. "We were together for everything!"

Rumors are swirling within the group of friends that the drug was mixed with some other chemical or cleaner. But Fenner says the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which analyzed the substance, confirmed that it is 2C-E and to his knowledge did not discover any other harmful substances in it. He says Blaine police are investigating along with Anoka County.

"Our investigators are diligently working toward identifying possible suspects and getting them charged, because we did have a death," he says.

Meanwhile, Robinson's friends and family are in mourning. He left a five-month-old baby boy named Bentley behind.

"He would always tell me and his mom that when he died he wanted to be remembered for something," says Larsin through tears. "And this is definitely it. There's so many kids now that will stop doing all this stuff. They want to be sober now. He made a lot of impact on a lot of lives."

I feel terrible for this child's death, but it really fucking makes me angry when I see this article dedicated to demonizing this drug when there's an advertisement DIRECTLY BESIDE it saying "BYE BYE LIVER!" with people holding drinks and smiling.sometimes society is so hypocritical that it's unbelievable.

Trevor was beyond an amazing person, who loved absolutely everyone who ever set foot into his life. Not to mention, was an even better father. Believe me when I say he lived for his family, including his mother. If Jill was such a bad person? How could Trevor have such love for everyone? She is more then an amazing mother to all of her children. How dare any of you to talk about a situation that you don't know anything about. Do I think Trevor should have taken the drug? Of course not, because if he didn't he'd still be here. But, god has his own plan for everyone. Trevor wanted nothing but to make a difference in people's lives, and that's exactly what he did. His story is known nation wide, and now people may think twice before they decide to take any drug that they know absolutely nothing about. As previously stated by other people, Trevor was an amazing person. He'd give everything he had to someone in a heartbeat, just because he was the type of person that wanted nothing more then for people to be happy, and be smiling. Like Ashly had stated, who are any of you to be talking? This could have happened to anyone. Whether they were experienced with drugs, or knew nothing about what they were taking. Overdosing happens a lot more then people seem to think, and it's definitely something serious. Nobody, and I do mean nobody deserves to lose a child. Regardless what the reasoning is. Any of you who seem to think Trevor was a bad person, bad influence, or anything further along those lines. Clearly know nothing about the real Trevor Vance Robinson. There's reasons why so many people miss him, if he was such a horrible person there wouldn't be so many people in mourning. It's sad knowing there's so many negative people in this world. After all who are you to judge a person that's dead, and who are you to go about saying Jill is a bad mother, and Trevor is a horrible person. Believe me when I say he didn't deserve this, and definitely doesn't deserve such negativity towards his death. R.I.P - Trevor Vance Robinson; There isn't a day that goes by in which we don't think of you. You're in Gods arms now sweetie, spread your wings and fly! <3

For all these people talking shit about Trevor your talk is cheap. Drugs are every where many people do them daily that dosent mean they are stupid it means they have a problem. Just wait till you have kids i bet your kids will do drugs and they might od as well or even some family members so if it was your kid would you really be saying all this shit. Trevor was a great guy ask anyone who ever met him everyone loved him. So if want to talk shit at least have respect and dont talk shit about a poor teen who died. What is wrong with you people talking shit about a young man dieing. Jill is an amazing mother and a very loving caring person and for you talk shit about her dead son really shows that your mothers did a shity job of raising you. Learn some respect and  all of you that are calling Trevor stupid should be praying that i dont find out who you are :) TREVOR ROBINSON <3 will always be loved and never forgotten and was the most amazing guy i ever met

Lamere loved this guy who died as a brother and also suffered from the effects of this rubbish that he had bought legally and he wasn't selling it. This isn't murder as Lamere was also a victim and he must be mourning his best friend terribly. Where is your compassion America? Find the labs where this stuff is made and burn them down

Trevor Robinson was my best friend i could never ever forget him. Honestly he was the only friend i trusted with my problems. Trevor filled a lot of hearts with love and left a piece of him with everyone he knew.I remember i met Trevor at a funeral and now i'm going to his funeral. Never really thought this would happen to the guy who filled everyone with joy.I love you Trevor Robinson R.I.P

how can they arrest the distributor of the drug and not at least one of this kids terrible friends that left him outside of the hospital on the grass?! knowing that someone is in need of medical care (which they clearly did because they took him to the hospital) but not being responsible enough to at least take him inside is incredibly irresponsible. in my opinion, probably more so than being a dumb kid and handing out an allegedly legal drug at a party. sad story, but it seems like more than one person is responsible here- including all the kids that willingly took a drug that was ordered off the internet.

One of the most persuasive arguments against getting involved in drugs is that you have to put complete faith into people (dealers) who liars, thieves and sociopaths. You will get stung sooner or later and the consequences can range from getting gipped out of some petty cash to a very early trip to the grave. Most people will have to learn the hard way so I guess it was dumb to even waste my time posting this comment.

I think the better choice for this young man would have been to focus on being a good father of a newborn baby and not trying to "one up" his friends. I do think there should be stricter laws on more harmful substances. Mr. Robinson was a legal adult and made the choice to ingest a drug that could do him harm. This was a poor decision on his and 9 other peoples part. When I was younger, going to a party meant having a beer or cocktail, not ingesting everything with every letter of the alphabet. As another human being it is sad to see someone die so senselessly but as a matter common sense and life just kind of seems like a stupid tragedy that could have been avoided if someone's priorities were in check.

MDPV makes a lot more sense than 2CE in this case.. it is extremely unfortunate that they were tricked into buying MDPV, the same thing happened to me a few months back, i was sold MDPV as MDMA and overdosed, luckily i am still alive but MDPV is a NASTY chemical that has no place in our world.

sad shit.... thats why i sticks to the weed...

As it were, an anonymous source has now stated that the drug sold as 2C-E was in fact a massive overdose of the drug MDPV, a component of "bath salts" whose ban was recently proposed by the DEA/congress.

"I'd like to shed some light on this, because I actually know what happened – I know these kids either directly or through some friends. I've heard what actually happened from several different people.

As some of you have guessed, this was NOT 2c-e, it was actually MDPV. The kid knew what he was selling, yet he still sold it like it was molly/2c-e, in 100mg capsules. Really ****ing dangerous ****.

The guy who sold these kids MDPV as 2c-e is actually friends with the guy who sold me and my friend MDPV as MDMA. Even more baffling, he had taken enough MDPV the night I was duped to put himself in the hospital. He was fully aware of the effects. I've met gang-banging heroin dealers more honest/ethical than these guys.

These kids run in the same scene as me, as well as the dealers obviously, and this has shaken the scene to the core. Very sad stuff."

The community would appreciate it if new sources would find out first what the compound was before writing something negative about it. This could be done in 3 minutes with an IR spec, as the ketone will be readily apparent which is not a component of 2c-e but is of MDPV. There are numerous cases of 2C-E overdoses in the literature and no fatalities, so I would think it would be at least prudent to demonize the correct drug.

i am sorry that everone would look down on trevor. he was a great kid and i will miss him dearly. however maybe the point was over looked, lets think about this, what do kids have to do? have you ever gone out where older people are? they hate teen age kids whether good or bad so where do they have to go to have a good time? friends houses and have to make up a way to have a good time. there are no jobs to keep kids busy, and well i feel sorry that trevor and his friends could only find that to do, but what is there for any kid to do anymore? and doing drugs is the biggest things and him doing that was just like the kids choaking them selves to get high or have we forgotten that i mistake casted trevo his life. and lets talk about peer pressier its much worse then it was when we were younger. and please lay off Jill not ever family is perfect but I will tell you one thing that lady loves her boys so much that she would do anything for them, what parent has an open relationship where thier kid can come talk to them? well Jill did. and she could tell him over and over that it was wrong but lets look he had a choice just like everyone else does. but look for ways to help kids and keeping them busy. Trevor loves his son also but when you don't know that situation you should not say anything. what druggy goes to college? just asking? Jill I am sorry for the things these people were saying about you and trevor but know this God is the only judge and look to him to help you and your family throught this. I love you very much!!

to reply to your stament of "no fatalities" that may have been correct at the time but I just lost a friend when she and another person died and like 7 more got hospitalized from 2C-E, admittedly it was apparently mixed wrong causing them all to od from taking what they thought was a proper dose.... but it was 2C-E... and it did cause fatalitites... so dont think its somehow safe or something...

don't think i will "be next" because my dealers know how to EDU. their clients and im not running around tryn to 1UP my friends with drugs.it sucks this happened not only because of the guy dying but now the GOV. will go and ban another great escape.

hey bitch, stop trolling and be a mother to your other kids before they OD on how much time ur wasting on the interweb.your son is dead, he would be if the drugs were regulated like Cigarettes & Liquor Lyrics; get over it and help to control illegal substances before they claim more lives

methadone is legal and people overdose on it all the time. thats obviously just one example of legal drugs that can cause overdoses when taken the wrong way. i'm not saying that all drugs should be illegal- and in some cases i strongly believe that changing some drug laws would make a positive difference. BUT being legal or illegal doesn't change how harmful some drugs can be- especially when put in the hands of kids who think they're invincible.

Dodge681
Dodge681

So if cocaine and heroin and meth were legal there would be no one OD'ing on them? I can understand the argument of legalizing pot for its medicinal purposes and from just having friends that use it recreationally with limited issues. I however, do not agree this is the "end of the story." What is your rationale? These are chemicals not intended for human ingestion being put into the body and causing death.

u are are so ridicously stupid Jill Robinson, if you are his really mother it makes sense, that kid got his stupidiy from you. How can you try to defend by saying those drugs ordered from the internet didnt have instructions? Those drugs are bought from internet vendors labeled not intended for human consumption. Even though 2c-e is safe drug used in the right circumstances, instead, because of idiots like your son, another drug is going to be banned which will just cause to create another synthetic drug that is more dangerous than the previous. He was not an amazing dad if hes still partying and doing 2c-e in irresponsible doses. You are so ignorant

you are an idiot and it never makes sense why my son dies and you continue to live on. These drugs my friend ordered via internet did not come with instructions dumb ass. And by the way your dealer has no guarantee either unless he made and processed his drugs himself. You however would not be missed if you died and your death would be invisable to all.

People OD on it by ignoring the directions on the label.Just think of dilaudid.It's a pharmaceutical opiate that's stronger than heroin or methadone, yet it's used safely every day.Something shouldn't be illegal just because a small percentage of people are stupid and/or irresponsible. If we start legislating on that basis, nothing will be legal.

ImSoBoredWithTheUSA
ImSoBoredWithTheUSA

The numbers I've seen from the feds state that a full 85% of drug overdoses are accidental, which makes sense, as most people using drugs are trying to get high, not kill themselves.That means that if people were consuming pure, regulated products, instead of taking uncertain doses of unknown purity, 85% of ODs could be avoided.During prohibition people would go blind or die from drinking bootleg liquor.That didn't happen before alcohol was made illegal, and it stopped happening as soon as prohibition ended.
