Comments Off on Police discover meth lab after man fatally burned in Raleigh

A man died at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis Saturday morning after suffering severe burns during a meth-lab explosion in Raleigh, authorities said.

Police discovered materials used to manufacture methamphetamine at 4 a.m. in a home in the 4700 block of Priscilla, three hours after finding Mario McCallister suffering from severe burns at Methodist North Hospital.

Traci Bowles originally told police she drove McCallister to the hospital after she saw him running down Priscilla suffering from burns that covered his body, said police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph.

McCallister was evaluated by a doctor at Methodist North Hospital. Police were called, and, after interviewing McCallister, officers went to the home on and found evidence of a meth lab.

McCallister was transported to the The Med’s burn unit in critical condition and died at 8:48 a.m.

After finding inconsistencies in Bowles’ story, according to an affidavit, authorities took her to Jail East and charged her with initiation of a process to result in manufacture of methamphetamine and promotion of methamphetamine manufacture.

The house was quarantined by police. Bowles is scheduled to appear in court Monday, and no bond has been set.
