Police investigate fentanyl overdose death
BRANTFORD — Brantford police say a 46-year-old man overdosed last Friday and died in hospital on Monday after allegedly taking cocaine and fentanyl, the deadly opioid.
They allege a 34 year old man sold the drugs to the victim.
He was arrested and charged with manslaughter after an overdose death.
He also faces several drug trafficking-related charges, including trafficking fentanyl.
Last week, South Simcoe police charged two Innisfil, Ont., men with manslaughter after allegedly supplying drugs to a 23-year-old who died of an overdose of heroin and fentanyl in April.
South Simcoe police deputy chief said drug dealers must be held accountable for their actions.
