I have to disagree here. Meth producers know better than to cook the stuff in their own residence. If he was a meth producer he would have known better. Besides, you need a virtual lab in order to produce meth, something that would not have been able to be hidden in a trailer. I do know there is a method for making very small quantities for personal use (they use a 2-liter bottle) but he wouldn't have done anything to her if she disrupted that since making meth in that way only requires shaking the bottle. He could have easily told her to go away without losing his temper.
I've seen a few photos of EK and EW neither of them look like meth addicts to me. They have none of the physical signs and attributes of those addicted to meth. Same with the heroin angle. Neither of them were users I don't think. Again, they lack the physical attributes and if they were using they weren't shooting up. Shooters will hide the track marks, both EK and KW have many photos of themselves in t-shirts. A heroin addict who shoots wouldn't be running around in tees.
My suspicion is that at the most they were stoners, maybe pill poppers.
Hey there! Me again! (I feel like a resident drug expert and I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. 😕.
You are correct about the "shake and bake" method of cooking meth. (I swear I only even know what its called becuse I was looking up recipes for coated potatoes using shake and bake and came across a YouTube video on how to make meth instead!!! ). However users are known to cook in their own homes. Even with small children in the home. But you're right that any of them that haven't drugged away the last of their brain cells know not to. Its so dangerous that officers who go on need to use hazmat suits, (which we saw in this case, but they were also going through garbage- fwiw that's the only way you could get me to do it 😂. And he was also known to have a volatile temper. He may have done something like that regardless of what he had been interrupted doing. (I hate anecdotes as evidence, but I have a very willful toddler and when she gets overtired and ornery, I could see how someone who didn't have patience or coping skills could lose their temper.). Lastly, method can be ingested any which way. Shooting. Snorting. Eating. Smoking. Things like meth mouth don't always appear immediately. If you look at that photo of them from last year- looks like probably Easter from clothing and the way he looks now. He's thinner. His face looks different. Etc. She also looks like she lost quite a bit of weight in a short amount of time.
Plus, again, I try not to look too far into the minutia of the details, but those blinds look like a meth head's. (They also look like cheap blinds in a house with pets or kids, so that's not a smoking gun for me. But sometimes if it looks like a duck and quacks as well...)
