"I would've probably buried her. I would've buried my daughter. I had the funeral planned," said Becky Drozdowicz.

"There would be a little ray of hope of that she would become clean but I didn't know how it was going to happen, when it was going to happen."
Looking for help, she turned to Officer Brian Foster from the Janesville Police Department.
"He didn't give up on her. Even when she if she was high. He was still talking to her," Drozdowicz said.
