Cayte passed away from a heroin overdose at age 18. The drug was given to her by someone else, she didn't do it herself.
Cayte's mother describes her daughter as "a sweet, loving 18-year-old with a smile that would melt your heart." She also said "I don't quite know what happened the day she died, but I do know she was not a heroin user. We need to make people realize that this could happen to anyone."
In high school, Cayte was a cheerleader and a member of the 4H Club in Hampstead, NH.
The person who administered the lethal drug to Cayte is now serving a prison sentence of 10 years to life. Rockingham County (New Hampshire) Attorney Jim Reams said that he hopes the sentence sends a strong message to those who deal drugs.
"It's the first time in which somebody who supplied drugs that killed somebody has been held accountable for that. It's the first time we were able to put that chain together," Reams said. "So this is history being made, and I think it's good history."
You can see by her pictures that this was a beautiful young girl who could have and should have had a long, happy and productive life. This should have never happened.
Cayte passed away far too young but if there can be anything positive from this, it's that there is now precedent for any future cases like this and people who supply drugs that take the life of another person will now be held accountable in the state of New Hampshire.
