The Kiss of Death

NYPost: Inmate dies after meth-laden kiss; girlfriend gets 2 years-

PORTLAND, Ore. — An Oregon woman whose inmate boyfriend died from a meth-laden kiss after a prison visit was sentenced to two years behind bars Tuesday on a drug conspiracy charge.

Melissa Ann Blair and Anthony Powell shared a long kiss at the end of a visit last year at the Oregon State Penitentiary and she passed seven tiny balloons filled with methamphetamine into his mouth. Two of the balloons ruptured in Powell’s stomach a short time later and he died of methamphetamine toxicity, prosecutors have said.

U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez said Blair’s actions were part of a scheme devised by Powell and others to get drugs inside the prison. There was a dispute as to whether Blair participated of her own free will, but Powell shared responsibility for his own death, Hernandez said.

“It was tragic and sad but he shares responsibility for what happened,” the judge said.

The 41-year-old was serving a life sentence for aggravated murder in the stabbing death of his mother-in-law, according to court records.

  1. I had a cousin die in a jail cell from swallowing evidence.

    It’s their choice, and they own it. Too bad we have to suffer for it.

  2. The judge thought it was tragic and sad that the convict who was guilty of aggravated murder died. That’s the kind of thinking that got us into the mess we are in now.

  3. Getting tired of reading so much embarrassing news about Oregon. It’s bad enough we vacuumed so many losers out of other states, but then we elect them to public office. Portland is full of out of state license plates, indicating more undesirables are moving in, none are moving out.

  4. I had a high school buddy who turned drug smuggler. He traveled to some country in Asia and swallowed condoms of hash oil. When he returned to the U.S. customs agents held him until he took a dump. He went to prison. I encountered him thirty years later working as a night janitor at a local college. Most of his teeth were missing and he could hardly form a sentence.

  5. The girlfriend is an absolute moron. The guys was going to be locked up for a very long time. She should have moved on.

    ” Dear Anthony, enjoy getting slammed in the ass in prison. I found someone else. ~ Melissa”

  6. The 41-year-old was serving a life sentence for aggravated murder in the stabbing death of his mother-in-law.

    Ok. So that’s the high-end of that situation. Time to rethink.
