2 Men Charged With Overdose Death of Minnesota Teenager
Hastings, MN (KROC-AM News) - The drug overdose death of an Eagan teenager last year has resulted in charges against two Twin Cities men.
The Dakota County Atty.'s Office has charged 29-year-old Jamal Adan of Burnsville and 27-year-old Sadiq Isack with third-degree murder. It's alleged they supplied the 16-year-old victim with what proved to be a fatal dose of fentanyl. Police in the southern Twin Cities suburb were called to the teenager's home on January 28, 2021, after his mother found him face down and unresponsive in his bed. Efforts to revive the juvenile were unsuccessful.
A news release says investigators learned the victim and a 16-year-old neighbor had arranged to purchase two Percocet pills from Adan and Isack the evening before he was found by his mother. The neighbor told the police he snorted half of one of the pills, while the overdose victim snorted the other half and the second pill.
An autopsy determined the victim's death was caused by positional asphyxia complicating acute fentanyl toxicity.
Conditional bail for Adan and Isack was set at $250,000. They are both due back in court on May 18.
