1) Student taken to hospital after swallowing pills

Appalachee High School student was hospitalized after taking about 12 over-the-counter cold pills he purchased from another student, a police report said.

The student, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, allegedly purchased 12 Coricidin for $5 from another student on Nov. 10 and took the pills. He was told by the student he bought the pills from that he would have to take between 10 and 12 pills to get the “full effect,” the report said.

Two other students had also purchased pills from this particular student, police reports said.


Beyond the Badge

One example of this came in October of 2002 when ISU student Michael Babicz was found dead in his Friley Hall room. Medical examiners later learned Babicz had died of an accidental drug overdose.

Babicz had large amounts of dextromethorphan -- a drug commonly found in cough medications -- in tissues of his body. DeLashmutt said police discovered Babicz had used his computer to research the drug 's effects before he overdosed.

Police were also able to use the timeline function of the computer to determine activity before Babicz's death. DeLashmutt said investigators were able to get close to the actual time of death.

He said one reason he likes working in computer investigations is most of the cases are completed. Generally, in computer cases police are able to determine whether a crime occurred and who committed the crime.
