(FOX 7) — AUSTIN, Texas – One pill laced with fentanyl is all it takes to claim a life. That’s what took the life of 18-year-old Hunter Crump in June 2022, two weeks after graduating from Taylor High School.
“I think I’m still in a little bit of shock. I cry daily. I miss my boy,” said Kimberly Crump. …
“This is war. This has killed more than any other war combined. This is war. Yes. That’s what we’re saying,” said Stefanie Turner.
To fight that war, Turner and Becky Stewart, who lost her son Cameron in 2021, along with Crump, want a new school drug awareness program. They also support new legislation that has been filed and named after Turner’s son who also died in 2021.
“I think in a curriculum, a statewide curriculum is very, very important. And Representative Wilson just filed a bill, House Bill 3908. It’s titled Tucker’s Bill, and it’s requiring school grades six through 12 for fentanyl education. But also we need to look even elementary school. This is an epidemic and our youth are being stolen,” said Turner.
