KELOWNA – The Kelowna girlfriend of Red Scorpion gang member Jamie Bacon died of an apparent drug overdose in the Lower Mainland last week.

The body of Madison Zoe Fine, 25, was discovered in a Richmond hotel room Dec. 1, 2017. Her family says she died of an accidental overdose.

“Maddie was the most headstrong, smart, creative, entrepreneurial (and maddening at times) daughter, who never accepted help,” her obituary reads. “She always wanted to solve things herself. She had an uncanny ability to read a room and any situation. She always fought for the underdog and helped a larger community of people in need.”

The Vancouver Sun reports Fine, who lived in Kelowna, was in Richmond to support her boyfriend Jamie Bacon when she died. He faced charges in connection to the 2007 Surrey Six murders and has since been cleared of all but one charge but has an extensive criminal history.

Jamie is one of three Bacon brothers.

Jonathan Bacon was gunned down in Kelowna on Aug. 14, 2011. Jarrod Bacon is currently in prison for parole violation. He and Jamie Bacon have both been implicated in several gun and drug trafficking cases and murders throughout B.C.

Fine was also well-known to police in B.C. She served a year in jail on two separate drug trafficking charges in 2012 and 2013, and in 2014 was arrested in downtown Kelowna when police found her with heroin, crack and cocaine.

Court records show she had yet to deal with charges of resisting a peace officer and impaired driving.

Her obituary remembers Jamie's "true love" as a young woman with a big, boisterous laugh and a commanding presence.

“Maddie spent her last few years, loving Jamie, sharing the laughs and travelling the world, making sure she did as much as she could while she was here,” it reads.
