Investigators in Madison County are searching for a man they believe may have provided drugs to a woman who later died of a heroin overdose. The Illinois resident died in her Maryville home in early January. Court records indicate that police responded to a call and found the 48-year-old woman unconscious in her living room. There was drug paraphernalia nearby, including a spoon, needle and syringe. No charges have been filed as police continue to investigate what they believe to be a serious drug crime.
A case in Madison County has taken a positive turn for a man accused in the death of a young woman. The man had been facing drug charges after a 17-year-old girl passed away from a drug overdose. The man had allegedly given the teen the drugs that lead to her death.
Illinois residents can find themselves in unexpected situations, such as when they make a poor choice in their personal lives that could lead to an arrest for criminal charges. This was the case recently when, as a result of police responding to a tip, four Illinois residents were arrested, on drug charges.
Recently, local media reported about the grand jury indictment of two Granite City men. The two men were allegedly involved in multiple charges that included the theft of air conditioner units from four area churches, a school and a funeral home.
