A drug addict gets some good PR after her death:
Despite protests from her sister, Nicole Guagliardo was adamant that crack was her only choice.
"There was no talking her out of it," said Gugaliardo's sister, Alicia Gonzales, 23.
Gonzales hoped her sister's troubles would end with an arrest and a trip to jail, a wake-up call and some type of court-ordered treatment program. Jefferson deputies said they found Nicole Guagliardo, 28, of 556 Focis St., slumped over the wheel of a gold 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt parked in the driveway at 3032 Burns St. about 4 a.m.
Women are targets:
