Jessica Conway, the mother of Avalena Conway, the two year old girl who died while in DCF care, passed awat today from what reliable sources tell Turtleboy Sports was a drug overdose. We will await for confirmation from the autopsy report, but we would not report this if we did not have extremely reliable sources. Just another crazy twist to this already twisted story. We will await for more facts to emergy, but this is why we were so adamantly opposed to that unnecessary GoFundMe. The funeral was covered. The police were investigating it. There was nothing to raise money for. Where did people think that money would end up?

The bottom line is that drugs suck. They ruin lives. We as a society have a moral obligation to make it harder for people to get their next fix. We have to end the culture of stop snitching on drug dealers. We have to outlaw panhandling, which is the easiest way for addicts to get their next fix. And most importantly we can’t be afraid to call out bullshit when we see it. Because it’s easier to give someone your money and tell yourself you’re making a difference, but it takes more of commitment, love, and compassion to confront someone struggling with addiction and offer them help instead of a handout.

Anyone who gave money to that gofundme was an enabler. You gave money to a vulnerable woman with a drug problem who was coping with a traumatic experience. You should’ve seen there was a problem by the way she was “grieving.” A well woman cries and mourns in privacy. Jessica Conway sought out the cameras and begged for money, and instead of helping her get treatment you threw cash at her. If you reassured her that she was a “good mother” you made her think that she wasn’t doing anything wrong. She had no problem. So why stop? Just a terrible, terrible story, but if anyone out there reads this and helps a loved one in need, then that’s all that matters to us.

Stay posted as more information comes forward.

    Its too bad the day before this poor girl overdosed she was arguing with a girl who is realated to me . little did she know the girl would be dead the next day. The place is a drug den. The apartment she was in was run by a drug user herself . zhe could have saved her .but she left her alone .and rule number one in a junkies life is dont get high by yourself just in case u do overdose you have zomeone to revive you or dial 911. So i blame both of them . the girl who’s apartment belongs to. And the girl for not staying with someone. God have mercy on her soul . and the girl who lives at 15 orne where she died .you have to live wirh that and have to answer for that someday. But its a matter of time before they find her overdosed herself. Get help before its to late. Go to detox while you have the chance. Before someone else dies in gour apartment.

    Remember she was screwing the father of four who was married and got pregnant with his fifth child. What a peach. Feel bad for his former wife. What a mess.

    She was a criminal and a drug addict who tried to exploit the death of her child for financial gain. This is no great loss.

    People don’t become saints just because they die.

    From MassLIVE: “Emergency responders headed to an apartment at 15 Orne St. around 3 p.m. Wednesday for a report of an unresponsive female and found Conway, according to Worcester Police reports. Conway was rushed to UMass Memorial Medical Center-Memorial Campus on Belmont Street where she was pronounced dead roughly 40 minutes later.”

    I could not be more proud! I used to live on Orne Street, number 15 to be exact, and there is nothing I love to read more than a former drug addict, mother of the year award winner, died in my old apartment building of a drug overdose. Ironically that same building is for sale. I am sure this will skyrocket the property value and the landlord, Pao Ling Wu, will LOVE the money she gets for a building she overpaid on.

    I am so proud to admit I lived there, because I left. I am not sorry I left, I am glad we moved, and Webster may be dumpy, have it’s own heroin issue, but no oneh as died within a 2 mile radius of my house. WTG Conway, you proved you are everything you said you weren’t: a drug addict, a liar, and deserved to have your kid taken from you. I am sure your OD made your poor, dead baby girl so happy that she is in heaven with God and you are rotting in hell.

    This is a sad situation all around and hopefully she’s at peace with whatever motivated her to be so selfdestructive, but it’s a high profile example about how little individual responsibility is valued in society these days. The bottom line is that the mother here made a series of bad choices without regard to herself or kids, there’s no getting around that. There is nobody to shift the blame to as it’s all on her, no matter how many Facebook friends and DCF parents of the year try to make excuses for her behavior. A choice to use drugs that there is more than enough information out there about the deadly consequences. A choice to steal which everyone knows can land you in jail. A choice not to be a responsible person when you have children to raise to hopefully be better people.

    Unfortunately there are many more parents like Conway and Green right behind them that treat parenthood as a joke by continuing their selfish choices and leave grandparents, the state, or strangers to try their best to raise their kids that shouldn’t be their responsibility. If you choose to do drugs and choose to commit crimes at least make a choice not to have kids, they are the victims who have no say in any of this.

    I believe the issue most people had with her was not necessarily her drug addition, but during the time of her child’s death, her despicable “blame everyone” but herself, her camera and attention seeking actions, and her money seeking activities VERSUS mourning her daughter’s death in private (where that belonged). Yes she was struggling with an addition, but her actions over the past weeks we’re despicable in my opinion. And last point, I still want a thorough investigation in to the baby’s demise. To protect vulnerable children in the future.

    My condolences to her family. What an awful series of events to endure.

    People make their own choices. When they do so, they must accept the consequences. Choose the needle, take the ride, and know where it ends. Self-medicating is no excuse. Take charge for your life. Only you are responsible for you.

    This is a heart breaking story, and your assumptions are cruel, and poorly written. What kind of journalist are you pretending to be by so clearly judging your subject. Pathetic. I don’t know much about this woman, and neither do you. Not to mention, your bit about a woman grieving is privacy is an even greater (and idiotic) assumption. Do the news, or so gossip, but try not to mix the two.

      TBS is a blogger, not a journalist. There is a difference, and yet you keep coming back for more. I much prefer to read something calling a spade a spade than an article that has been “fluffed”.

        That’s not what Turtleboy claimed on fb last night when he was boasting about “breaking the news” about her death. He said this is news, this is what we do. Go on fb and read for yourself. So which is it? Is it a blog or is journalism? It seems like it’s ” just a blog” when it’s convenient, but for bragging rights all the sudden it’s the news. And there’s no way to deny that commenters on the tb fb and this page wrote that they hoped she’d od. I read it. If it’s not there now, it’s just because it’s been deleted.

    “A well woman cries and mourns in privacy”??? Whoever wrote this article is a fucken idiot. Grieving over the death of your child is not something you have control over dumbass.

      Dana, I think the point that was trying to be made that instead of mourning, she was asking for money. As stated the funeral was being covered and there was an active investigation going on regarding the little girls death. Therefore handouts were not needed. The mother claimed it was for a lawyer, but that brings back around the the ACTIVE investigation, so really no lawyer was needed to help “find out what happened”. This woman was a drug addict who saw and took an opportunity to get money to further fund her habit. I’m honestly not trying to even degrade her by saying that, I’m just trying to be matter of fact.

      Parents who are not addicted to drugs who have kids that pass away, normally mourn, which yes is different for everyone, while it’s usually a close friend or another family member that handles things like raising the costs of a funeral via donations, fundraisers etc. Because normal parents, like I said are to busy mourning the loss of their child.

      It’s very sad that this is how the story ends, one hopes that maybe the parents would have taken their dear daughters death (and while it doesn’t it make up for anything) turn around and get their shit together for the children they still have. 🙁

        I watched those interviews, I never saw a tear, eyes well up, or any kind of sadness. She almost sounded like she was saying what people expected. I don’t think she felt bad at all. She didn’t know her child, she was in prison for 75% of that childs life.

        • Nope, no thanks

    She was a disgusting person who took advantage of her daughters death to try to raise money to feed the habit that out her daughter in foster care to begin with. She had zero business having a good fund me account . whoever writes this blog said it was probably for a lawyer to sue the state do you shouldn’t now go and blame anyone who donated. This site is a joke.

      “whoever writes this blog said it was probably for a lawyer to sue the state ”

      TBS did not say it was probably for a lawyer, he merely stated that SHE said it was for a lawyer. He actually repeatedly said it was probably not being used for that purpose.

    Drug addicts couldn’t give a shit less about what commenters on a blog say.

    They only care about their next fix. That is fact. A fact the politicians and do-gooders need to wake up to.

    I feel so bad! I know and stated on this site that this was going to happen as if it wasn’t hard enough having a drug addiction ppl made comments to this already broken women I said if I had to deal with first off my child dying and the horrible stuff people stated even here on turtleboy like ” her baby was probably better off dead” ect…. that she was going to kill her self so sad! Now your all gonna go on and say even more horror so her parents and family who by all accounts look like they are older and in declining health which is probably why no one in Avalena family could take her ! People are going to attack them saying things like she deserved it! In a month they lost there grandchild and now there daughter please please don’t be evil, And judgmental. I pray for that family. May Jessica’s soul rest

      Why are you now blaming commenters for her death???
      Can you just own up to facts that DRUGS did this…Drug use was the result of her child being in foster care and DRUG USE is the cause of her death… Call it a disease , call it her weakness, but if you are going to blame anything blame the drug use… Many Many many of my friends have died from this and the common denominator was not a blog it was drugs…I will not comment on the could’ve should’ve portion and I never did but I will try to open your eyes to the fact that she died of a DRUG OVERDOSE. FYI I have recently lost a friend in the past week and enough time hasn’t passed for a wake yet… how drugs and lemme go a Lil deeper it’s Heroin that started as an opiate addiction and I’ll fuckin guarantee you this was her story. RIP mom and RIP lil one … bless you both…

    So now there are 3 kids back in the system? Hopefully dcf wont give the 2 that belong to the soon to be overdosed father custody. Those poor kids, brought into the world with zero prayer of having a somewhat decent life. My heart bleeds for the kids.

    • CBS
      September 2, 2015 at 8:42 pm

      Those details weren’t accurate. The father has 4 other children with his ex-wife, but she has custody. So at least there’s that.

    I feel guilty for some of the comments I made regarding this story, however as someone who has personaly seen 1st hand struggles with opiate addiction, I was hoping a family member or friend would share my sentiment and smack some sense into her.

    Hopefully she went in peace.
