Matt and Christine say their daughter Alex was a bright light whose smile lit up the room when she walked in. They say in December 2019, Alex came home from college for the holidays, and after a day of shopping with her mother, the 20-year-old tragically died.
Christine says she found Alex’s lifeless body in her bedroom – and she and Matt discovered half of a pill on Alex’s desk that they say she took to help her insomnia.

“Alex was poisoned, and this was murder,” Matt says.
Hear what the parents say they learned about the pill in the video above. And, hear what they say they found out about buying drugs on social media.
On Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, "When One Pill Kills," hear from three other families who say their children also purchased counterfeit pills on social media which were laced with fentanyl, a deadly drug that killed their children within moments, and how they are demanding changes to laws, policies, and accountability from social media companies.
