Mother of Student Who Died after Taking Molly to Appear on ‘Katie’

Posted: Updated:

The mother of a University of Virginia student who died after taking the drug "Molly" is speaking out.

Dede Goldsmith is opening up to Katie Couric about the death of her daughter, Shelley. Shelley died in August after taking Molly in Washington, D.C. Shelley's friend, a fellow UVA student, says Shelley told her that she was going to take the drug at an electronic music concert.

Now, Shelley's parents are coping with the loss of their daughter.

"This has been like all the terrible things combined into just the most gut wrenching feeling you could ever know. We'll never get to see her marry, never get to help her through other hard decision and we'll never get to see what she was going to do for this world," Dede said.

Shelley's mother says she wanted to work for the criminal court in The Hague. Katie's look at the drug Molly airs Thursday at 2 p.m. on NBC29.
