A WOMAN has been charged in connection with the death of a teenager who died of fentanyl poisoning in December after an overdose while in class.
The U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado announced Wednesday that Alexis Nicole Wilkins, 26, has been charged with distributing fentanyl, which resulted in his death.
Wilkins is accused of distributing pills containing the drug to two teenage girls in the parking lot of the Citadel Mall in early December 2021.
The girls took the pills to Mitchell High School the next morning and shared them with a third girl, who accidentally overdosed and died.
The girl took the pill in a bathroom, went to class and, according to an affidavit, started foaming at the mouth and became unresponsive.
The girl’s teacher noticed she was in trouble and called 911. The teenager was taken to the hospital, where she later died.
FBI investigators questioned the girls who allegedly bought the pills, citing the suspect as the seller.
Investigators found the suspect’s Facebook page with “a massive amount of data, comprising over 80,000 pages of documents,” read the affidavit.
On Tuesday, FBI agents and Colorado Springs police officers executed a search warrant at the Wilkins home, which found more than 100 pills and more than $7,000 in cash, according to court documents.
“Some of the pills were recovered from Wilkins’ master bedroom and some from her silver Jeep Grand Cherokee. Investigators believe some of the pills were prepackaged for distribution,” the affidavit reads.
The woman was arrested and questioned during the search. She told authorities she was unemployed and had started selling the pills six months ago, according to documents.
“She claimed she wasn’t sure if all her pills contained just fentanyl, a mix of Percocet and fentanyl, or just Percocet.
“She said she just purchased fentanyl from her supplier on March 14, 2022 for approximately $2,000 and only distributed fentanyl on March 14, 2022,” the affidavit reads.
Wilkins appeared in federal court on Wednesday, where she was briefed on her charges. If convicted, she faces up to 20 years in prison.
