Man Charged in 2010 Heroin Overdose Death

A Milwaukee man going by the nickname "Boss" is accused of selling batch of heroin that killed a 20-year-old Waukesha man.

A 52-year-old Milwaukee man is facing a reckless homicide charge alleging he sold the heroin that killed a 20-year-old Waukesha man nearly 2-1/2 years ago.

The first-degree reckless homicide charge was filed Friday in against Carl Wesley. A warrant has been filed for his arrest in the death of Andrew Debroux.

According to the criminal complaint:

Debroux was found dead at 926 Eales Ave. by his mother around 6 p.m. Jan. 20, 2010. Officers responded to the residence where they also located heroin, oxycodone, cocaine, plastic baggies, a syringe and a charred metal spoon. The medical examiner’s office ruled the cause of death as acute heroin intoxication.

Debroux’s girlfriend told officers they would purchase heroin from Milwaukee from a man named “Boss.” Another man was interviewed by police in December 2011, who told officers that “Boss” was Carl Wesley.

The girlfriend then provided police with more details about Debroux’s death in January, stating the drug dealer had told Debroux to be careful with the heroin because it wasn’t the usual batch.

The girlfriend told investigators Debroux had been out of it the night before his death and she woke him up because she was concerned. They argued before she left to work because she didn’t want to leave the heroin with Debroux.

Wesley denied selling Debroux the fatal batch of heroin and told investigators Debroux came over to his residence to fix his TV cable and update his computer.
