Sellers of Drugs Arrested in Man’s Death
SUPERIOR, WISC. — After a six month investigation by the Superior Police Department into the overdose death of a 45 year old man, two women have now been arrested and charged.
The Superior Police Department says the two women have been charged with being Party to a Crime and Reckless Homicide. Police say the two were responsible for the sale and delivery of the drugs that killed the man.
34-year-old Cassidy Rose Anderson faced charges of being Party to a Crime and Reckless Homicide in her initial appearance in Douglas County Circuit Court on April 10th.
Two weeks later, on April 24th, 26-year-old Madeline Jean Peterson was also charged with being Party to a Crime and Reckless Homicide.
Last year, the City of Superior saw an approximately 21% increase in overdoses compared to 2021.
Police are working with the Douglas County Attorney’s Office to charge the people who sell these drugs as a way to prevent overdoses.
Since 2018, the Superior Police Department has offered free in-patient and out-patient treatment through the Pathways to Hope program.
