Abdulbaaith Adewale Biography
Who is Abdulbaaith Adewale ?
TWO high school seniors who had allegedly struggled with addiction were found dead with fentanyl in their systems.
The Texas teens have been identified as 17-year-old Grant Blodgett and 18-year-old Irene Sunderland.
Sunderland’s mother, Mandy, found the teenagers in her daughter’s bedroom surrounded by drugs. Both had overdosed, reports KHOU 11.
The drugs were reportedly laced with fentanyl.
Arrested and Charged
Abdulbaaith Adewale, 19, was arrested for supplying drugs to students.
Records show Adewale is being held in the Montgomery County Jail on $150,000 bond. He was charged with two second degree felonies for manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance causing death or serious bodily injury.
Text messages discovered by authorities showed that Adewale told the teens that someone had already died from the heroin he had given them.
Investigators said Adewale knew the drugs “could and probably would kill them.”
The Texas penal code says that if someone dies or suffers serious bodily injury from a drug, the punishment for the person who manufactured or delivered it is increased by one degree.
Adewale had previously been charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and had completed a program and had the charges dropped, according to reports.
In a statement, Sherrif Rand Henderson said: “Let this be a warning to those who sell illicit narcotics: Montgomery County Law Enforcement is committed to finding you and holding you accountable not only for the selling of illicit narcotics but for the deaths that occur.”
Mandy had planned to take Irene to rehab on the same day. Both teens struggled with addiction for years, despite being active in their high school and making post-grad plans.
The teens died just weeks before graduation.
The US Sun has reached out to the Montgomery Sherrif’s Office but did not hear back from them by the time of publication.
In April the US Drug Enforcement Administration sounded the alarm after fentanyl-laced drugs caused multiple mass-overdose events in American cities, resulting in the death of 29 people.
In a press release issuing the warning, DEA administrator Anne Milgram offered the federal agency’s support to law enforcement tasked with responding to these overdoses.
“Already this year, numerous mass-overdose events have resulted in dozens of overdoses and deaths.”
Mass-overdose events occur when there are three or more overdoses in close proximity to each other.
Seven cities in the US have experienced mass-overdose events over the last several months, according to the DEA.
