ROCHESTER - A local woman has started a petition in response to a judge's decision to approve the release of Jazzmyn Rood, the mother of 17-year-old Eve Tarmey, who died of a drug overdose in October.
"Eve was my son David's girlfriend for over two years, and they were also first loves; she was a very big part of our family's life right up to when she died, and she is missed dearly," Tracy Marshall said in an email to NH1 News about the petition.
She argues Rood, 41, should remain behind bars and not released even with the judge's conditions, including wearing a GPS device.
"[Eve's] death could have and should have been prevented if this drug addicted 'so called' mother had Eve's best interest at heart, (as all mother's are supposed to do). Instead she sat by WATCHED and did NOTHING as her drug-infested boyfriend handed over a deadly dose of fentanyl that killed this sweet innocent girl," Marshall wrote on the change.org petition webpage.
Rood, an admitted drug user herself, was reportedly in the motel room when Tarmey died of a fentanyl overdose, which was provided to the Spaulding High student through Rood's boyfriend, Mark Ross. Ross also faces charges in connection with Tarmey's death.
"Please don't allow this monster her freedom!! Keep Jazmyn Rood behind bars!!" Marshall wrote.
As of 1 p.m., her petition, launched Wednesday, had collected more than 270 supporters.
