The company from which investigators said an Ada man bought the designer drug linked to a Konawa death is closing, according to its website.
According to court records, Cody Weddle, 20, bought 1 gram of 2C-E from www.chemicology.net. Weddle was arrested Saturday on complaints of murder and conspiracy to distribute a synthetic substance.
“Due to customer abuse and moral obligation, Chemicology.net will be closing,” the announcement on its website states. “Once our stock is depleted, we no longer intend to resupply.”
Weddle, who has not been charged, gave some of the drug to Anastasia Jewell, 21, and Andrew Akerman, who took it to the party to sell, prosecutors said.
Jewell died early Saturday at Seminole Medical Center. Akerman and six other partygoers were hospitalized, and Akerman remained in critical condition Tuesday. The effects of the drug are supposed to be similar to ecstasy.
It isn't clear whether the decision to close the online business was related to Jewell's death. No physical address or telephone number are listed on the website.
The website states that it does not sell chemicals to anyone younger than 18, and its products are only to be used for research purposes in a laboratory setting.
