The cops say robert deniro‘s grandson ingested fake oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl, and even though her alleged dealer knew the pills could kill…she sold them anyway.
According to legal documents, obtained by TMZ, investigators found several pills at the scene of the death of a 19-year-old Leandro DeNiro. They say they went through the teenager’s phone and discovered he had been exchanging texts with a 20-year-old woman named Sophie Marks about buying counterfeit oxycodone and Xanax days before he died.
Most disturbingly, cops say during an exchange, Marks asked, “Do you really need them? I don’t want to kill you.” She continued, “I just don’t like serving them to you because they’re not scripted.”
Eventually, the two made a deal for 3 of the fake Oxycodone pills and two Xanax pills for $105…and Marks allegedly texted (about the Oxy), “don’t go overboard with it.”
The drugs were delivered by car to De Niro around 9 p.m. on July 1, and at 1:50 a.m. on July 2, cops say Marks texted the teenager, “Are you okay?” … De Niro never responded.
From Niro was found dead of a suspected overdose on July 2 … investigators found a bag of cocaine, a straw with residue, two blue pills with “M” and “30” (oxycodone) and seven rectangular tablets – believed to be Xanax.
Shockingly enough, cops say Marks continued selling after De Niro died – selling an undercover officer 25 pills for $500 on July 9… reportedly told the undercover, “please be careful with those don’t do more than one at a time my friend just died.
Investigators say further analysis revealed that the pills found at De Niro’s scene as well as those sold undercover all contained traces of fentanyl.
Marks is charged with one count of distribution and possession with intent to distribute fentanyl and alprazolam, a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. She is also charged with two counts of distribution and possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
