Tulsa, Oklahoma: Ayden Ross Jennings, who died on November 10, 2011, was just 15 months old when he lost his life in a meth lab fire in his mother’s home. The boy’s mother, Jennifer Michelle Jennings, 26, and Jacob Allen Bell, 35, are both facing charges of manufacturing meth and two counts of child neglect for making meth with two children present, children that included Ayden and another 5 year old child. Jeffrey Wayne McBride, 47, was also charged with manufacturing meth, after investigators said he admitted to them that he manufactured methamphetamine in the duplex, the day before Ayden’s death. McBride is being held on $507,500 bond; Jennings on a $200,500 bond, and Bell on a bond set at $62,500.
Donald Hogue, Ayden’s father, arrived in Tulsa on Saturday after David Starkey, founder of stopmethlabs.com, flew him back to Oklahoma from his home in Washington, so he could attend the funeral of his young son. Oklahoma legislators were also invited by
“I hold every Oklahoma Legislator accountable that came out against OK HB 1235 and the ones who accepted the blood money from the drug lobby. This includes former Representative Dan Sullivan who has now admitted that he is the one that refused to take it to the house floor but he is not alone. What I want to know just how much money was my child’s life worth? How much was given to the legislature by The Consumer Health Care Products Association, Pfizer or any of the other pseudoephedrine manufacturer? I promise to find out how much blood money was accepted by legislators and make it very public. I do not want Ayden’s death to be for nothing and I am going to do all in my power to see that a prescription law is passed in Oklahoma and in the rest of the county. This is the only way to stop these children from burning to death in these meth lab explosions.”
Oklahoma legislators failed to pass legislation that would have made pseudoephedrine in pill-form a prescription drug in Oklahoma. If a prescription pseudoephedrine drug law had been passed last year, it would have become effective on November 1, 2011, nine days before Ayden’s tragic death. Pseudoephedrine is the only ingredient in a meth recipe that can’t be substituted with something else, so meth-makers can’t make meth without it.
