Comments Off on Man, woman burned in alleged Pasco meth lab explosion identified

DADE CITY ā€” The Pasco Sheriff’s Office has released the names of the man and woman who were burned Tuesday evening when an alleged methamphetamine lab exploded in a house at 15615 14th St., Dade City.

Kenneth Dixon, 39, suffered severe burns to the face. Adonia “Star” Olsen, 45, was also burned but not as severely, a sheriff’s spokesman said. Both are listed as living at the same address.

A neighbor told Bays News 9 that the victims had been renting the home for about three weeks.

“They were screaming and they were smoking and she was on the ground flipping around,” the neighbor said. “I was calling 911 and she was just melting and his eyes were just glazed over.”

There have been no arrests as detectives investigate who owned the lab.

Dixon, who has “hard times” tattooed on his upper eyelids, has served three stints in prison for possession of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, aggravated assault, child abuse, possession of controlled substances, child abuse and felony driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to the Florida Department of Corrections. Olsen was convicted in 2009 of carrying a concealed weapon, in 2007 for giving a false name to law enforcement and in 2003 for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to Pasco court records.
