If it's suspected that Gina was "slipped" the drugs then yes, there should be an investigation. BUT, if it's widely accepted that she took them on her own, I don't see the point in wasting taxpayer money on a self-induced death.
And I think your take on my analogy was a bit skewed. If our hypothetical driver CHOSE to get in a car with a drunk driver, or chose to drive drunk, then the comparison would be somehow analagous. I think you saw my point but had to argue it anyway.
I guess my analogy was not presented clearly, if u are driving a car and a drunk driver hits u head on and kills u, u knew that possibility existed before u got behind the wheel, then according to what u said about someone dying from a drug overdose "knowing what could happen" then there is no reason to prosecute the drunk either, when u got behind the wheel u knew what could happen? You are correct in I did understand what your line of reasoning was. I just disagree with that reasoning

When is the Chico Police report regarding their thorough ongoing investigation as to why a otherwise healthy 21 year old college co-ed Gina Marie Maggio was found dead going to be released?
It will be wonderful I am sure for Gina's family to know that no stone will be left unturned by the Chico Police Department in discovering every bit of evidence as to what happened.
Keep up the great work Chico Police Department, everyone is looking forward to your detailed investigation report.
Im sure that the Chico PD is in close contact with the Maggio family and I believe that it is in the best interest of Gina if you just leave it. Obviously her family will be updated with any news and honestly whatever happened is really none of your business. If it was an issue of foul play then it would be brought to the attention of the public, however it is not looking that way so Im sure her family and friends would appreciate if you stopped stirring up an already extremely tragic event.

Really, you are spokesperson for Gina's family & friends they must know and trust u very much are u a relative, close friend of the family or their attorney? You are also sure if there was foul play the authorities would bring it to the attention of the public, however u say "it is not looking that way". I thought that in most cases if the police suspect foul play generally the last to know is the public. You also believe that it is in the best interest of Gina if I just leave it.

Speaking in the best interest on the behalf of someone who has died is not your privilege, so climb down from your self anointed position of illegitimate authority, I will not stop addressing the seven past student Poly Drug Deaths that have happened in Chico over the last 36 months.

As for the Chico Police Department classifying the last seven student Poly Drug Deaths as accidental deaths with no investigation regarding finding the drug sources, who knew what was taken, how it was taken or even trying to remove a scum of the earth drug pusher off the streets of Chico who is addicting and killing teens and young adults is shameful. If Gina’s tox does come back positive, heaven forbid it does, but if it does what the chances the drugs she may have consumed could have come from one of the drug pusher who killed one of the seven prior students. That’s the problem, get the picture, drug pushers don’t quit selling drugs because some kid dies, especially if the Chico Police do nothing about it.

In the case of Gina Marie Maggio I know that Gina was found dead for unknown reasons, police found no sign of foul play, and they are waiting for a toxicology and autopsy report to come back. This is the identical procedure of the Chico Police Department in the prior seven student Poly Drug Deaths.

I pray and hope that Gina’s Tox report comes back negative for illicit drugs, maybe her death was caused by a previously undiagnosed medical problem we can only hope for her family, friends and everyone’s sake.

"If it was an issue of foul play then it would be brought to the attention of the public"

The Chico PD and most certainly the University do not consider drug overdose foul play. It looks a lot better public relations wise to call it "accidental". For all we know the same drug dealer may be involved in more than one case. At what point do we take the scum off the street? After he sells your kid a fatal overdose?

Will that be enough to say "it was no accident"?

At his point, after seven students have died from Poly Drug Deaths in Chico I am not sure what it would take. The ability to reason and common sense should dictate Chico Police policy, instead Chico University dictates Chico Police Policy. What dead students?

I sincerely hope that Gina's tox report comes back negative for illicit drugs. I would hate to again hear Chico State University administrators demean another student because he or she made a poor choice, like they did the other seven students who have died from poly drug deaths. Saying derogatory things about the dead no matter what they died from is vile. I guess it makes the Chico State Administrators feel better about themselves, makes these lost students seem less than important and justifies Chico State University for not intervening

After two weeks has anyone seen a police report regarding their investigation into what killed Gina Marie Maggio. They are doing an investigation, correct? I would assume that when someone dies in the City of Chico the Chico Police Department does investigate? What have they found?

It's poly drug use, chowder head. There is no "poly drug". Polydrug use refers to the use of two or more psychoactive drugs in combination to achieve a particular effect.

I did not know that cold medicine was a psychoactive drug genius, it seems the Drug Abuse Warning Network classifies cold medicine as a Poly Drug, but I guess because you say so they must be wrong? Look in the mirror, I think u have a clam on your lip.

Your blind to seven students in Chico dying from Poly Drug Deaths, but you take exception of my spelling. Glad your seeing the bigger picture.

One more thing about this post that is flawed, does poly drug use achieving a particular effect include killing students? This vague description of achieving a desired effect sounds so charming and mind altering, something Timothy Leary would have spewed. Instead in reality it is highly addictive, coma inducing, and extremely deadly. Desired effect, what bullsh*t, it's killing kids and adults.

And there you have it, the truth as only "methprevention" can tell, seven students dead from "cold medicine". Oh thank you for this valuable information that was not mentioned in any of the stories of the deaths, information only you know. It was unclear at first just what polydrug you were talking about because MDMA and methamphetamine are definitely not "poly drugs".

Can you offer the slightest bit of evidence that any of these people including Gina Maggio was doing Loads? Or that they even knew what they are? Using drugs for the synergistic effect implies choice and bad judgement.

For Gina Marie Maggio, the answer is no, her autopsy report with her tox info will not be back for weeks.

As for the others who have died from a poly drug death I will post some of the autopsy I have found in my research.

Autopsy reveals deadly drug mix
An autopsy released this week concluded that a lethal cocktail of drugs killed a 22-year-old Chico State
business student Aug. 19, 2006. Kyle Bartley tested positive in a toxicology test for a mix of cocaine, the painkiller oxycodone and diphenhydramine, which is common in sleep aids. He died of acute polypharmacy poisoning, said John Kuhn, Butte County chief deputy coroner. His death was ruled accidental, Kuhn said. When an overdose death is accidental, there usually isn’t an investigation or charges. Bartley’s roommates found him dead in his bedroom around 3:20 a.m. Aug. 19 after he had slept all day Aug. 18, according to a police report.

Stephen William Davis, 23, a 2002 graduate of San Luis Obispo High, died May 13 after coming home and falling asleep on his couch after a night of drinking with his roommate, according to the department.
A toxicology examination conducted by the Butte County Sheriff’s Office revealed evidence of Oxycodone, cocaine, morphine and codeine in his system. His blood alcohol level was 0.14.
The anti-depressant Sertraline was also found in the toxicology, said Chico Police Sgt. Rob Merrifield.

The 21-year-old biology major was found dead in her home Sept. 9. The preliminary cause of death was reported to be heart failure.
The autopsy found that Marsh died of complications from pain medications oxycodone, methadone and fentanyl and the drug meth, said Lt. Dennis Cooley of the Butte County Coroner's Office.

Oh look, meth is listed as a drug that killed Ms. Marsh!!!!!! A Poly drug death simply means multiple drugs taken together causing death.

Nick Atherton's death is considered a poly drug death because in his system he had rubbing alcohol, cough medicine and an over the counter pain medication. It is not very complicated but it sure is deadly.

MDMA, cold medicine & ecstacy are all included in many poly drug deaths reported in the 2007 DAWN report. Teens are abusing cold medicine in great numbers because it is easy to get, as I stated it was being shared at the party were Nick A. was, the kids were getting high on it, but unfortunately it killed Nick.

There are your newspaper articles, if u still do not believe what I say look up 2007 DAWN mortality report.

I am just the messenger, all this info I share is from law enforcement SA Prevention agencies, Office of Applied Studies, DAWN, articles from news papers, local and out of the area. From all of these sources their conclusions as well as mine Poly Drug Deaths are sky rocketing.

It's always nice to see bus coming so one can step on the curb to get out of the way.

Here is the problem: "He died of acute polypharmacy poisoning, said John Kuhn, Butte County chief deputy coroner. His death was ruled accidental, Kuhn said. When an overdose death is accidental, there usually isn’t an investigation or charges."

If Gina Marie Maggio tox report is positive for a Poly Drug Death their will be no investigation or charges as stated by Butte County Law Enforcement and that is *ucked up.

If it were a law enforcement officer kid or a city councilperson's kid, u bet your sweet ass they would investigate, charges would be made and someone would swing as they should.

But not for the last seven students law enforcement in their stupid ignorant policy procedures declare the death accidental, no need to investigate, nothing suspious, right. Just seven dead college students in 36 months from Poly Drug deaths, now possibly eight. Nothing suspious about that, jerks!

If that's what you are trying to say? Then why not just say it? Polydrugs have a many different meanings. Mostly it is drugs taken for the synergistic effect, like some AIDs drugs. Or even illicit drugs like Loads [glutethimide and codeine]. The combination is regarded as synergistic in its ability to produce a sustained euphoria or "high" that is similar to heroin.

What you are taking about, mixing counteracting drugs, is nothing short of ingesting poison. It's a death wish come true. Suicide by stupidity. You find it shocking that people that engage in this behavior die? As for education, do you belive that any of these adults reached their terminal age without learning that mixing drugs can kill them?

You want the Chico PD to widen their investigation beyond the person responsible for this death who is lying on a slab in the morgue? It that it? Find and prosecute anyone that may have aided and abetted this type of death? These were adults with serious problems responsible for their own deaths. People with a death wish will always find a way.

The victims here are the families that loved them. Having the manor of their loved one's death dredged up again and again is nothing but pain for people trying to move past greif on to the good memories.

poly-drug
adj
involving or taking more than one kind of illegal drug

Synergy
The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.

Your definitions while elaborate are a bit over stated. So as much as I hated I went to the Webster to add clarity to your statement.

The combination (Poly-drug) is regarded as a way for a drug addict to replicate the initial high of a specific drug by adding additional drugs due to the fact their body ability to tolerate higher doses of their original drug have increased therefore diminishing the desired results.

You act as though there are good illegal drugs and bad illegal drugs or as if there is a proper way to take them, illegal drugs are poison, this is why people die. All prescription drugs when not taken for their intended use or are abused are poison, this is also why people die. So in reality

Why is it OK for a drug dealer to be arrested and prosecuted for selling illegal drugs but not OK to arrest a drug dealer for selling drugs that killed someone? Why is it OK for law enforcement to set up elaborate drug bust operations (tens of thousands of dollars) for selling drugs but spend no money on finding the drug dealers who are killing students?

If you and your family get hit and killed by a drunk driver and you knew that was a possibility when you got behind the wheel then the drunk driver should not be prosecuted because you knew the danger, is that what you are implying? Just because you had a death wish and got behind the wheel why should our tax dollars be spent prosecuting a drunk driver?

So knowing that someone supplied your child with a deadly poly drug overdose and no one cared enough to bring their slime ball dealer to justice should just be overlooked as not to dredge up any undue pain or grief. For who, the family of the lost child or law enforcement?

Did Law Enforcement tell Gina's family if her autopsy finds her death was caused by an overdose that Law Enforcement does no investigation or no one will be charged because they consider an overdose death accidental.

I find it puzzling that Law Enforcement make such a big deal out of arresting a drug dealer for selling drugs, pound their chests, big press in the paper but when drug dealers kill children and adults the police do nothing.

I hope for Gina & her family that her tox is clean, otherwise no one will ever know, who, how, or why she was killed.

From: http://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/polydr...
Main Entry: poly·drug
Pronunciation:\&#712;päl- &#275;-&#712;dr&#6 01;g\
Function: adjective
: of, relating to, or being the abuse of more than one drug especially when illicit ; also : engaging in polydrug abuse or the distribution of illicit drugs for such abuse <polydrug users> <a polydrug smuggling cartel.

You must be using a different Webster than the rest of us. I give up poly-drug means what ever you, Jim, want it to mean.

Chasing down the source of the fatal drugs used in an overdose and then holding that source responsible is for the most part a legally imposable task for the police. Remember the star witness is dead. Drugs like oxycodone generally originate from prescriptions but are not likely to still be in the labeled bottle once they reach the blackmarket. Courts require actual admissible evidence to convict anyone. They cannot go on what you may have heard or what you think happened. Some times like in the case of the kid that OD on methadone in Paradise the cops can ascertain the source. That woman was prosecuted.

You are on the poly-drug thing so think about it. Do you want to prosecute the source of Kyle Bartley's diphenhydramine? You know that is the OCT drug Benadryl, right? A 100% legal drug. Where does personal responsibility come in? Is Rite-Aid responsible for people that misused the products that they sell?

In the case of an adult's if there is no evidence of foul play. They are responsible for their own death. The buck should and does stop with them.

I have been in the position of losing a family member to poisoned drugs. He knew the risks of what he was doing. I don't expect the cops to chase after his killers nor will I. I tried everything I could to prevent his death before the OD. Sometimes people are going to die and there is absolutely nothing you can do. Accept it as part of the human condition and move on.
