On July 3, 2015, 17-year-old Megan Pacheco was found incoherent and unresponsive after CSPD, CSFD and AMR Ambulance medical personnel responded to a residence on a possible drug overdose call.

She was transported to a hospital, where she later died. El Paso County Coroner's Office reported that her death was caused by an overdose on MDMA, a drug also known as "Molly."

Detectives investigated the source of the drugs, and two individuals have been arrested in connection with the drugs that led to Pacheco's death.

22-year-old Marjorie Dietrich was arrested on October 1, 2015 for distribution of a controlled substance, which is a class three drug felony. 26-year-old Ryan Kollman was arrested Wednesday for the same charge.

Molly is known a "club drug" among teens and young adults. Molly-related emergency room visits for people under 21 years old has increased 128 percent in just six years, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Molly can be snorted or taken orally, and is often laced with other drugs, such as heroin, cocaine, or methamphetamine.
