Hey Scumbagged this guys name is Ken Tackett and he made a horrible decision that affected countless lives forever. Mr. Tackett is from Eaton Township in Grafton, Ohio & is well known for his prolonged heroin use. Through his usage he inadvertently helped to seal the fate of someone well known and loved around the Lorain County area.
In January, of 2017, a 28 year old man from Columbia Station suddenly passed away. His closest friends and family members never saw it coming, as many unfortunately don’t. The cause of his death was from an apparent opiate overdose. However, this mans premature demise wasn’t entirely of his own doing.
On the night of January 16th, 2017, the young man from Columbia Station was riding his bike to his “friends” house. This friend being none other than Ken Tackett. Mr. Tackett had gotten his friend strung out on heroin and even went as far as to coerce his friend into to using a hypodermic needle.
Sad but True: Ohio has one of the highest death rates in the entire Nation regarding heroin users.
COBRA Says: The heroin epidemic is one that has claimed the lives of many loved ones across the area. The sole blame here shouldn’t be put on Mr. Tackett for his alleged actions that transpired that night. However, we should take into account him being the initial person to get his friend addicted and the last person to ever see him.
Mr. Tackett used his position as the “middle man” to essentially manipulate his own friend (even if he didn’t and still doesn’t see it that way). His friend had a job and a steady cash flow and this was an opportunity for Mr. Tackett to obtain additional heroin for himself. He also now had a close friend that he could secretly get high with; because nobody else but these two knew that the young man from Columbia Station was using.
The friend of Mr. Tackett then rode his bike home after leaving Mr. Tackett’s house and that was the last time anyone ever saw him alive.
After his friends death, Tackett went to extreme lengths to distance himself from the carnage he had created. He also aimed death threats at people who were calling him out on what he had done. No remorse.
It should be noted that the name of the young man has been removed – as well as extensive textual content – in an effort to preserve his memories and prevent any family distress.
