Comments Off on Three women charged with conspiring to cook meth

Three women have been named as co-conspirators in a federal indictment against accused Moffett methamphetamine cook David Dunman, including a Lufkin woman who appeared on national talk shows four years ago to recount the details of the night her cousin was murdered and she was attacked.

The 66-count federal indictment for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine names Dunman, along with Deanna Sunshine Turner, Crystal LeAnn Keisler and Jennifer Jon Holliday, who appeared on “The Montel Williams Show” and “I Survived” in 2007 to tell her survival story in the death of her cousin Ana Franklin.

At the time of the attack, Holliday’s story drew national attention. Moved by accounts of an uninsured woman’s struggle to get medical care for her shattered arm in multiple newspaper articles, the president of Memorial Hermann Healthcare System provided Holliday with necessary care at no cost, according to a 2007 Houston Chronicle story.

The federal indictment claims Holliday and the three others conspired to purchase psuedoephedrine at East Texas area pharmacies from May 2007 to November 2010 with the intention of making meth.

Narcotics investigators with the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office said in an interview last year that in the two years they had been watching Dunman, he had never sold directly to them or one of their informants. They believed Dunman had the multitude of women they observed coming in and out of his home moving the drug for him.

The indictment also states the government is seeking to seize property from Dunman, including 15 weapons, three boxes of ammunition, his home at 3790 FM 842, a 2002 Ford Truck and 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

In Count I alone, each person could face life in prison, according to the indictment.

Dunman, Turner and Holliday have all been arrested and transferred into federal custody, but as of Tuesday afternoon Keisler remained at-large, according to jail records.
