Icon05 Erie, Pennsylvania: Woman high on meth dies after pumping gasoline into her anus

Quote:
A 32-year old Erie, Pennsylvania woman has been killed after an overdose on meth caused her to insert a gas pump nozzle into her anus and begin pumping gasoline.

The woman, who is yet to be formally identified by authorities, is believed to have a record for multiple drug offences in Pennsylvania. Officials who are involved in the investigation believe the latest incident was caused by the woman overdosing on meth.

I've seen this story pop up in several places online but it's setting off my "fake news" spidey sense pretty hard. The news website where it originated doesn't seem right to me, every article is a link to a different news service and they don't have any affiliation links or genuine contact information. Also there's zero mention of this story in any other news media.

Edit: I did a whois search on the website and it was registered on Oct 5 2018 so yeah, fakey fake fake

I foolishly clicked the link to your source (I don’t blame you, I should have done the google search first) and was rewarded with a barrage of horrendous ads. Based on that (way more and louder than the usual news website) and the following link about a similar story carried by cbsnews10, I gather that cbsnews10 is a hoax website:

Ah, I have AdBlock so I don't ever see popup ads. If I could still edit the OP I'd add a warning on the link.

Meth is indeed a helluva drug, but I don't think that's how gas pumps work.
