(KVUE) — CEDAR PARK, Texas — Andrea Hickman, Carilu Bell and Crickett Hummel are three Texas women whose loved ones passed away from fentanyl-related deaths.
Hickman’s 17-year-old nephew, Andron Petteway of Austin, died in January 2022.
“It’s heartbreaking to watch my sister go through this every single day without her baby, her kids. It’s her world,” Hickman said.
Carilu Bell is a mother whose 44-year-old son, Casey Dean Copeland of Austin, died from taking valium and fentanyl in August 2021….
All of these women are part of an organization called Texas Against Fentanyl and support a bill called “Tucker’s Bill,” introduced by State Rep. Terry Wilson, that would require school districts to provide at least 10 hours of instruction related to “fentanyl prevention and drug poisoning awareness” for sixth through 12th graders.
