Federal Grand Jury Indicts Oshkosh Man for Fentanyl-Related Deaths

An Oshkosh
man is indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly distributing fentanyl –
which led to the deaths of two people. Federal prosecutors say 39-year old
Desmond Burns distributed the fentanyl, which was used by an Appleton
woman who died in May 2017 and a New
man who overdosed in June 2017. 

Police say drug
dealers may dilute their heroin with fentanyl, which is 50 times more potent
than heroin – making it easier to accidentally overdose. If convicted, Burns
faces between 20 years and life in prison.
