Specialized Investigations Division detectives today arrested Natalie P. Neil, 31, on a 2nd degree murder indictment charging her with supplying Nashvillian Charles Hargrave, 32, with fentanyl laced heroin on which he fatally overdosed in April.

The investigation, led by Detective Tyler Conrads, shows that Hargrave had ordered heroin from Neil a short time before his girlfriend found him dead inside his Glenpark Drive residence on April 7. The Medical Examiner determined that he died from a fentanyl overdose.

Dangerous fentanyl, which is responsible for an increasing number of overdose deaths, has been found combined with other street drugs, including heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and even marijuana. A tiny amount of fentanyl can cause death.

The Specialized Investigations Division’s Neighborhood Safety Unit is working closely with Assistant District Attorney Mindy Vinecore in the Neil prosecution and other similar investigations.

Neil is being held in lieu of $150,000 bond.
