Milwaukee Man Convicted in Heroin Overdose Death

Carl "Boss" Wesley will be sentenced in March for the homicide of Andrew Debroux.

A Milwaukee drug dealer will learn his fate in March when he is sentenced for selling heroin that caused the death of a 20-year-old Waukesha man more than three years ago.

Carl “Boss” Wesley, 53, pleaded no contest via an Alford plea Tuesday morning to first degree reckless homicide. He faces up to 25 years in prison followed by 15 years of extended supervision when he is sentenced March 14.

According to the criminal complaint:

Andrew Debroux was found dead by his mother at their home in the 900 block of Eales Avenue on 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.

heroin deaths are on the rise in Waukesha. Crime is on the rise in Waukesha due to Heroin. So one less heroin dealer on the streets, with anothe waiting in the wings to take his place. It's a vicious cycle. If there were not drug addicts buying the product there would be not drug dealers, if there were not drug dealers the addicts would have no one to buy from. It's like a chicken and the egg riddle played over and over again.

Its sad and all, but he made a choice to use the oxy, cocaine and heroine in his house. I believe the dealers should be prosecuted, but they should not get the bulk of the blame. The dealers don't go looking for customers, customers come to them.
