This week Rodriguez was found unconscious and bleeding in his cell, and later died at a hospital.  The wounds were self inflicted from a plastic spoon he’d sharpened and then used to stab himself.  The man was not on suicide watch.  He originally was arrested on June 9th.

Keep Your Roofies Away From Kids

Timothy James Waldrop has some explaining to do.

He’s facing felony charges of drug possession and cruelty to children after a two year old accidentally drank from a water bottle that was laced with his date rape drug.

Waldrop was living in the home of a friend with a kid.  The two year old was spotted by his father holding the water bottle, that had been left out by Waldrop, and ten minutes later the kid, “started acting weird and collapsed in the kitchen”.   The child was transported to an Atlanta area hospital and his condition is unknown.

Walkdrop was kicked out of the house and later tracked down at a gas station.  He is being held without bond.

The drug in the bottle reportedly is GHB, or gamma hydroxybutyric acid — a synthetic drug.  Waldrop told the father that was in the water bottle just before the kid got sick and he was told to leave.
