Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Chief Matthew P. Geist of the Middlesex Police Department said a Sayreville woman was arrested on charges that she provided the drugs that caused the death of a 32-year old borough resident.
Danielle Urbanowicz, 30, of the Parlin section of Sayreville has been charged with one count of strict liability for a drug induced death for providing the combination of heroin and fentanyl that killed the 32-year old woman.
Urbanowicz was charged on October 16, 2018, for the drug induced death of the victim who was found dead in her home on September 22, 2018. The Middlesex County Medical Examiner determined the cause of death to be the result of the combined toxic effects of heroin and fentanyl.
The defendant was previously charged on September 22, 2018 with the distribution of a controlled and dangerous substance.
An investigation by Detective Sean Flanagan of the Middlesex Police Department and Detective Erik Larsen of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined that the defendant sold the combination of heroin and fentanyl to the victim which caused her death.
Urbanowicz is currently being held at the Middlesex County Adult Correctional Center pending an initial court appearance scheduled for today in New Brunswick Superior Court.
The investigation is active and is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Flanagan at (732) 356-1900 ext. 313, or Detective Larsen at (732) 745-3263.
As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charges against Urbanowicz are merely accusations and she is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
