PINK HILL, N.C. - One man is dead and three others behind bars after a meth lab explosion in Pink Hill.

It happened November 10 at a residence on Narcie Turner Lane.

An anonymous caller told deputies they saw flames in the area and spotted a vehicle leaving the area. The caller said when he heard the explosion and saw the fire, he went to help, but was told it was a chemical fire and instructed to leave the scene.That same caller said he'd spotted a blue truck fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed.

A deputy from the Duplin County Sheriff's Office responding to the scene stopped a driver in an F-150 truck leaving the scene. As he approached the truck, he noted a strong chemical odor and that the passenger of the vehicle had severe burns.

Investigators say they found a clandestine methamphetamine lab located in an outbuilding on the property.

One of the subjects involved, Rodney Glenn Bryant, later died from complications related to injuries sustained in the explosion. Three others were taken into custody, including 32 year old Justin Lee Blizzard, 34-year-old Edna Ranell Shivar, and 40 year old Linwood Willis Parker III.

Blizzard was charged with Accessory after the fact and destruction of evidence. He was placed under a $100,000 bond. Shivar was charged with Conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, accessory after the fact, destruction of evidence, and failure to appear. She's under a $606,000. Parker was charged with felony probation violation. He was placed under a $25,000 bond.
