2 more Colorado families join wrongful death lawsuits against Snapchat

Two more Colorado families have joined a lawsuit filed against Snapchat. The Social Media Victims Law Center (SMVLC) has filed wrongful death lawsuits against the social media platform, claiming its disappearing messages enable illegal drug sales. Eighteen-year-old Lauren Lujan of Centennial died in 2020 and 19-year-old Malik Majekodunmi died last year after connecting with suspected drug dealers on Snapchat and purchasing Percocet they didn’t know was laced with fentanyl, according to Denver News 9. Max Osterman, 18, of Thornton died in 2021 the same way. The lawsuit claims Snapchat encourages dealers to locate and access nearby minors and young adults with all evidence of crimes erased within 24 hours. SMVLC is representing 35 families across 15 states with pending lawsuits against Snapchat related to fentanyl poisoning claims. For more on this story, visit https://www.9news.com/.
