N.D.Iowa: Admissions about one’s own drug use to police during 911 call about unresponsive woman were RS

Police and EMTs responded to a 911 call about an unresponsive woman who later died. At the scene, admissions about defendant’s own drug abuse were made. “The court finds that the information about E.M.’s drug use, particularly when coupled with the knowledge of the drug use of the other occupants at the residence, established reasonable suspicion that criminal activity may have been afoot. Therefore, officers were authorized to conduct a Terry stop.” United States v. Parker, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 3728 (N.D. Iowa Jan. 9, 2018).*

After police were already lawfully on the premises, there were no exigent circumstances shown for an entry into defendant’s bathroom. United States v. Salazar, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 214485 (D. N.N. Dec. 29, 2017) (transcript of findings and conclusions).*

This 2255 is just an effort to relitigate the search issue already decided on appeal. Denied. United States, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 3735 (D. Minn. Jan. 9, 2018).*
