My testimony in 2007 in front of US Senator Patrick Leahy’s Judiciary Committee.  How many deaths could have been prevented Senator Leahy if you had the courage to initiate an investigation into the maker of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma when I implored you to do so?  Would we now be fighting for the lives of our children in a Holocaust of heroin deaths?

(MYRTLE BEACH) My name is Marianne Skolek. I had a beautiful 29 year old daughter named Jill. She had the misfortune of being prescribed OxyContin in January 2002 and was killed on April 29, 2002.
