Authorities recovered baggies in the victim's bedroom containing a substance that was later determined to be a mixture of heroin and fentanyl.
Investigators learned that Rashan allegedly supplied the drugs that caused the overdose and found baggies in his residence while executing a search warrant that matched those recovered from the scene, the state's attorney's office said.
Also recovered at Rashan's residence was a scale with drug residue on it and a list of names and phone numbers that included the victim's information.
Rashan will be eligible for parole after serving three-fourths of his sentence, the state’s attorney’s office said.
