The Collin County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man in connection with the death of a man that overdosed on the deadly drug Fentanyl, according to a press release.

Gabriel Aldo Fossatti, whose age is not immediately known, was arrested early morning Wednesday at his residence in connection with the death of a 29-year-old man who overdosed on Fentanyl.

Fossatti faces a charge of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance causing death or serious bodily injury.

On August 5, 2022, Sheriff’s Deputies were called to a residence on FM 546 in Princeton, Texas where they found the 29-year-old man lying dead in his bedroom.

Deputies searched for evidence and found a counterfeit Percocet pill that was later tested in a lab and was found to have been laced with Fentanyl.

The Collin County Sheriff’s Office assigned the Gang and Habitual Offender Strike Team (GHOST) to investigate the overdose.

They were tasked to search for the suspected dealer responsible for the death of the victim.

Fossatti was identified by GHOST investigators as the person who provided the man with the drugs.

After a search of Fossatti’s home, officials reportedly seized Psilocybin (mushrooms), marijuana, a loaded Glock pistol, and numerous pills including Xanax and Percocet.

The Percocet pills recovered at Fossatti’s residence were reportedly the same ones found at the scene of the deceased man in Princeton.

“Here in Collin County, we have seen a 571% increase in the number of Fentanyl-related drug overdose deaths in the past 36 months,” said Collin County Sheriff Jim Skinner in the press release.

The investigation is ongoing.
