Police say Timothy Lamere took the same 2C-E that killed Trevor Robinson-Davis.
The Anoka County attorney has officially charged Timothy Richard Lamere with third-degree murder for his role in a mass 2C-E overdose.

According to the criminal complaint, Lamere provided the drug that lead to 19-year-old Trevor Robinson-Davis's death last Thursday. The police report also revealed that Lamere took the drug as well.

According to police, 21-year-old Lamere arrived at a spring break party in Blaine and began offering "2C-I" to the guests, saying it was a hallucinogen. He poured out the grayish powder on a living room table, cut a few lines, and snorted one. Robinson-Davis did a line after Lamere. At least 10 other guests took the drug as well.

It didn't take long for the effects to hit Robinson-Davis. According to his friends, he started punching the walls, yelling, and smashing things, and his eyes dilated. Soon after, he couldn't breathe.

One friend called 911 while another decided to drive Robinson-Davis to the hospital. He was left in the Unity Hospital parking lot in Fridley, where hospital workers found him.

Back at the party, cops arrived and discovered a scene of chaos. While some guests fled to avoid the police, they also began feeling sick, and Blaine police spent some time rounding them up. Some of the guests under the influence of the drug started fighting back against cops and medical personnel.

At some point, police found Timothy Lamere lying in a snow bank in the front yard. He was given medical attention, but cops also went into his pockets and found the pill bottle, still containing some powder.

Ten people were taken to the hospital as Robinson-Davis was already fighting for his life. At 2 p.m. on Thursday, he was removed from life support. The Anoka County medical examiner says he died of cardiac arrest, as a result of toxicity from drugs "in the 2C category."

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension analyzed the gray powder found in Lamere's pocket and determined it was 8.9 grams of 2C-E. He was arrested on Friday.

If he's convicted, Lamere is facing up to 25 years in prison. Robinson-Davis, meanwhile, has left a five-month-old baby boy fatherless.

For heaven’s sake, this guy lost his best friend who he loved like a brother. Not only that but he also overdosed and was taken to hospital. Instead of a scapegoat find the lab where this rubbish synthetic get-me-rich-quick sheet was made and burn it and sentence the people (who are probably much older than 21) who made it for murder instead

I am so glad I didnt see this before I buried my son Last Thursday or I would of lost alot of faith in human nature and sincerity and compassion. What the hell is wrong with you people with your heartless comments about my son you thank god never had the honor of meeting because if you had you would of never showed such deadened morbid uneducated guesses trying to pretend you know what you are talking about sick people. I can sadly say that if it would of been you or your child you would most likely would not of caused any where near such impact with his death., First, these kids did not get directions with this via internet substance that was legal to purchase. You sick people however do get directions with all your over prescribed legal medication and I can also take a wild guess that you are also the ones that need the directions on a frozen pizza to take it out of the package. So Sad that the precious and kind get chosen to die and the evil and doomed just will be dumped somewhere in the where to put your soul pile. yuck i am so glad my son never crossed your sad paths and I hope I never do either.

It's a good job they're banning this. That will make sure no-one can get it just like all the other drugs.

Yeah send this guy to prison, this drug is active in very, very small amounts and he was carrying 8.9 grams of it!!!! This guy gives responsible drug users a bad name. At the same time it sounds like everyone at this party was just stupid. It is a shame we cant educate our youth to the responsible use of these and any chemicals. Instead of education it is a broad dont do nothing attitude.

If you are going to teach sex ed and give condoms out, then teach drug ed and teach kids about the dangers of using any chemical without proper research or a very trusted source who has done their research to educate them(sounds like from other posts this guy was definetly not a educated source). Kids are going to use drugs, it is a huge mistake not to teach them about the responsible use of them.

More harm reduction less criminalization. Laws and regulations can be made to no end, but there will always be a new substance to replace which ever drug happens to be the scourge of society at the time. The laws of man will never snuff out the desire to alter ones perceptions of this life. All society can do is to make sure people can pursue these desires in a safe responsible manner, and if this can be done perhaps we will have less instances such as these stories that one sees in the news.

Agree with Chalky above. Someone (**cough** a reporter **cough**) needs to figure out if 2C-E is in fact illegal, and if not how you can charge someone with murder for distributing it.

They always have to find someone to prosecute. Its a legal substance and they all took it of their free will. Where do they get this 3rd degree murder charge?

KEEP IT LEGAL TO MAKE IT EASIER TO CONTROL.and do the same with other drugs; don't you people get it? no matter what you/gov. do people will find a way around the system and at that point it makes the drugs even more more dangerous.street dealing/underground should not be the way to deal with drugs.

He didn't kill anyone. If anything it should be ruled a suicide and since you weren't there you obviously don't know how things went down.. who are you to say he should be locked up for 25 years?
