Waupun Woman Makes Initial Court Appearance On Drug Death Charges

A 38-year-old Waupun woman suspected of supplying the heroin and cocaine that led to a Town of Fox Lake woman’s overdose death made her initial court appearance this week. Jackie Meyer was in Dodge County Court on a first degree reckless homicide charge. Prosecutors say Meyer took Karen Sadowski to her drug dealer in Madison in August of 2016. After Sadowski’s overdose Meyer fled to a friend’s house. Sadowski died at a hospital the next day. Meyer allegedly asked her fiancé to lie about where she was when Sadowski overdosed. Phone records and information from Sadowski’s family contradicted his story.  Meyer posted a $5,000 cash bond and has a preliminary hearing on April 16th.
