    Shelby Armstrong (16) death by "Dusting"

    http://www.mydeathspace.com/article/2007/02/20/Shelby_Armstrong_(16)_drowned_in_her_bathtub_after __Dusting_

    come on now.
    she had a car accident and there was a can at the scene. so she did this while she drove???? and the mom didnt do something.

    she would have computer keyboard cleaner in her room and the mom didnt do anything then???

    parents really need to stop being afraid of their kids and take control.

    now her daughter is dead.  That is a damn shame no one told her what she was doing was idiotic.  DUH

    rest in peace shelby

    Maybe I am weird but, I use Pledge for dusting. I love the lemony smell.

    RIP Shelby.

    Re: Shelby Armstrong (16) death by "Dusting"

    Her mom says the high school junior frequently inhaled the compressed air product used to clean office equipment, known on the street as "dusting, " and believes that was a contributing factor to Shelby's untimely death.


    Her mom knew she did it frequently and even mentioned she found out after an auto accident.  I wonder what steps she took to get her to stop or if Shelby assured her she would never do it again.  I think if that happened to my kid one time, it would be really hard to ever trust them again.  I am so thankful I never had to go through anything like that with my kids.

    I can remember years ago, five girls from area where huffing keyboard cleaner while driving and got into an accident and they all died. I haven't really looked into it but this article references it.

    I CANT help it but say it again... HER MOM KNEW??? what the hell???  What a STUPID WAY TO GET HIGH!!! I think if i found my kid huffing or dusting or being a fuckin jackass, I think that I might actually buy them weed and say.. "HERE, you want to get high??? HERE, smoke a little weed, it'll last longer and you cant OD. you can thank me later!"
    :2tongue: :2tongue: :2tongue: :2tongue: :2tongue:

    Mom should be arrested for stupidity while parenting.

    *staring at the can of air duster in my desk, shaking head in disappointment*

    The worst thing I ever did with these things was spray them upside down on the carpet so the super cold fluid freezes the rug and creates frost.

    There was a point in my life when I would get hassled trying to buy air dusters for legitimate reasons because of idiots like this.  Even after surviving a car accident, she continued her old habits.  This isn't a loss, just another wasted, unaccomplished life.

    I looked up after reading this and saw a can with the straw attached.  If I die from a heart attack tonight, will the paramedics see that and think I snorted it?  Just how do you do that?  Do you stick the straw up your nose and push the button?  I'm curious - have to research this one!

    Re: Shelby Armstrong (16) death by "Dusting"

    Hey Mom, did you feel that?  It was an opportunity.  The opportunity to save your daughters life.  Too late, you missed it.  You see when she wrecked her car while dusting or huffing or whatever the fuck it is called you could have altered your babies fate.  I bet you wish you had that opportunity back again.  What was so important you couldn't take time out for you daughter's cry for help.


    So incredibly sad! What a waste.  Another life snuffed out too soon

    There's some pics of mom in her younger years on Shelby's myspace. I bet she's one of those moms that wants to be more of a friend than a parent. "acid on xmas?" (in pics) bet she knew about that, too. :x

    Hmm, I wonder if I can just spray some dustoff into my ear so maybe it'll get to my brain faster!

    the other day i found myself sniffing markers in front of a room full of co-workers.&nbsp; in my defense, it was because the markers smelled like otter pops.&nbsp;



    maybe she was just into the scent?

    She definately didn't learn that stuff here in Aus.&nbsp; Unless of course i'm too old and the youth of today has gone and found new things to be dumb at....that's probably the case.
    RIP Shelby GT500

    There's definitely nothing fascinating about the scent...it's just that when you breathe it in, you get about a 30-second high. Then it fades away, hence the &quot;need&quot; to huff again to keep it going.

    One of her pictures says it's a Gucci ad... if she was a Gucci model, she could probably afford REAL drugs.. i wonder why she went with the household product category instead
