Nebraska Police Investigate the Death of a 12-Year-Old Girl

Police in Lincoln, Nebraska are investigating the death of a 12-year-old girl they found unresponsive at a local residence. According to, emergency responders found Serena Garrett on the floor hallway of the home.

Lincoln Police Chief said, “We have been told that the 12-year-old victim did take some pills during the night.”Police discovered large amounts of prescription drugs in the home, including methadone, oxycodone, and morphine. Police have yet to determine who the drugs belonged to and what they were used for.

The owners of the home were gone when the incident occurred. There were five children and youth there, ranging from ages 12-19. A 13-year-old friend had invited Serena Garrett over to help babysit, and when she found Serena unconscious, she called 911.

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
