SEMMES, ALABAMA: A grand jury will now hear the case of a 17-year-old boy who has been held responsible for the fentanyl overdose of Adrianna Taylor. The decision was taken on Tuesday, December 13, after a preliminary hearing. Taylor, a student at Mary G Montgomery High School, was found dead in late August in her Semmes home.
At the time, the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office stated that the 15-year-old died because of “the ingestion of some pills that were possibly laced with fentanyl,” Al.com reported. Following her death, the suspect was slapped with charges of manslaughter and distribution of a controlled substance. Though the accused was reportedly charged as an adult, his name has not been disclosed.

In September, Chief Deputy Paul Burch had told Fox10 News, “It’s not gonna just end with this case. We’re going to team up with our federal partners. We’ve got to put a stop to it before it gets out of hand like it is in some other areas around the country.” Burch also went on to warn people against fentanyl as he told WKRG-TV, “The size of a packet of sugar which is one gram can kill hundreds of people.”
Meanwhile, the unfortunate death of the schoolgirl left her family and friends devastated. Her sister, Ashton Logan, took to Facebook to share her grief as she wrote, “Haven’t gotten much sleep since you left us , but I made sure these past couple nights I prayed and made sure I said everything I’d say to you as if we was on FaceTime or laying on the couch watching our show or just if we was in the car I miss you so much today it’s hurts , it hit me that you’re not gonna call me to come get you from pawpaws or from school all that’s gone now, it was taken from you by a STUPID DRUG . A DRUG CALLED ‘fentanyl’ took my baby sister from me , at 11:45 my baby sister lost her life took her last breath and now I have to live the rest of my life without her , I know in my heart this was a huge mistake and she didn’t know what she was doing she was a baby!”
“And she loved life so much and enjoyed life and had amazing friends And family who LOVES HER SO MUCH & she enjoyed going to the skating rink or movies or bowling or doing her make up or hair SHE LOVED THE BEACH her favorite color is blue & if you asked her favorite food it’s McDonald’s chicken nuggets & large fry and large sprite .
