Meagan Cregut Steele was a loving mother. She was a cherished daughter, a caring sister, a wife, and a fun-loving friend. Sadly, Meagan Cregut Steele is now another link of a sadistic chain that binds Huntington, West Virginia with Detroit, Michigan. Meagan Cregut Steele is another statistic, another young woman murdered by heroin.

The chain connecting our beloved Tri-State area with a dangerous, gang infested city over six hours away has grown longer in recent months. On election day of 2012, two Detroit drug dealers were gunned down in a robbery gone wrong. Already in this young year Detroit drug dealers shot and killed a local resident over drugs in a quiet neighborhood just outside city limits. Now, it was Detroit heroin that was responsible for snuffing out Megan Cregut Steele's young life at Day's Inn. Detroit heroin can be every bit as deadly as Detroit gangsters.

Organize A Peoples Ambassador Program

http://www.atlanta.net/pressroom/pressRelease ...

I have posted this several times for the public. I believe a program of this type could be implemented in the City of Huntington.
I am willing to work on this with you. My email is listed under my profile. Email me and we can begin to coordinate efforts.

People in this area need to band together and take Huntington back... We need to push drug dealers out of this great old town... If we could somehow form a group of brave concealed carrying fed up law abiding citizens to patrol trouble areas and keep police informed we could put pressure on illegal activities and force these harmful drugs and people to move on.... Detroit has Detroit 300 doing this why can't we? I say no more drugs no more murders no more fear! I'd be willing to take the first shift anyone else willing?
Not me. That's what we pay the police for. I will continue to mind my own business and stay out of the way.

Not sure if you are trying to be funny, but if you are serious, that's like a Diabetic continuing to ignore his blood sugar and eating tons of sugar saying, "I will continue to do whatever, that's why I take insulin."

Police can only do so much. If good people do nothing, you'll eventually need a lot more policeman than you can afford - if we aren't there already.

you all need to be quiet, its not like they made her down heroin, it was her own choice. if she was as good of a person as you say she would have never touched it, i dont blame the gang bangers they go where the money is and all the white trash down here continues to fill there pockets full of money because they would choose the drugs over a last meal. im sorry you all lost someone you cared about but its no ones fault but her own, i mean look what she was doing, what kind of people did you think she would be dealing with, care bears? all these guys want is to expand territory and make money and they have both here. its not our job to band together to stop it, its the people who do its job to stop it. quit buying it and they will leave.

I'm not trying to be funny at all. Where were all the cops and good people 25-30 years ago when all of this mess started. So now that the wildfire is out of control you want me to risk my life helping this city? Hell no. Like I said before, I'm gonna work, pay my bills, feed my family, mind my business and stay the hell out of the way. If you want to try and make a difference then more power to you, but I was brought up to keep my nose out of where it don't belong

Huntington was a great place to grow up when I was young and its so sad what it has turned into! My concern is not for my safety I can take care of myself... My concern is for our future our kids!! As a parent I try to shield my children from all the dangers in this world but I know that someday they will be on their own and they will have to lean on the lessons my wife and I have taught them to survive... I've seen good kids from good family's go down the wrong paths and either end up addicted jailed or dead... All I can think when I see this happen is how would their lives be different if they were not exposed to so much trash that a town like Huntington has to offer! Now I know that Huntington is nothing in comparison to let's say Detroit but what will it be like in 10 or even 20 yrs if something isn't done NOW!.... What can I do to improve my city? Alone not much but together with help from others not afraid to make a stand we could actually make a difference! Drug addicts don't wake up one day and decide to start using drugs... they are exposed to them over and over again and next thing they know they are stealing lying and cheating to get their fix! How many could be saved if the drug exposure was decreased? If it was just one I think it would be worth the effort!

Wayne, would you mind citing your sources for this story? I'm pretty sure some things you have written are not first hand knowledge and things true or not would prefer to be kept private by the family. I understand freedom of speech and your intentions are not that of harm, but I think you should have talked to a family member before publishing your information, instead of the words of a "good Samaritan"

How the hell are you people going to say she died of heroin when the family still doesn't even know yet the truth. Because the family doesn't know so who the hell are you to say this?

Thanks Diablo, that's what is wrong with this site, people just pop off at the mouth like they know everything. The people who wrote and have contributing information to this story are classless and pathetic. And Joe who is referenced in the article, what kind of "friend" sells out someones past struggles to a half ass blogger/journalist to make themselves look like they are some type of great comforter.

I agree 100%. I don't feel sorry for junkies. If you don't want to be a drug addict then don't stick a needle in your arm. Seems pretty simple to me. If she was so great she would have been home taking care of her kid, instead she was shooting up in a nasty hotel with a drug dealer.
As far as The Bluff being a quiet neighborhood, PLEASE! That place is a rat's nest of scum.

The police are under no obligation to protect any person. They are obligated only to the law. Look it up

The hpd has at least one cruiser, sometimes more hiding behind the floodwall. These officers should be active on patrol!!!
