Woman Accused Of Smuggling Methamphetamine Into Michigan Prison, Facing Felony Charges

A Detroit woman faces felony charges for allegedly smuggling methamphetamines into a Michigan prison last year, resulting in an inmate’s deadly overdose, according to state police.

The 24-year-old woman was charged with supply of a controlled substance resulting in death and other charges in the death of William Wilson, 57, at the Lakeland Correctional Facility, Michigan State Police announced Wednesday.

The woman was detained on Monday and brought to Branch County Jail. Her name will be concealed until she is arraigned, according to a news statement from state police.

After Wilson died unexpectedly at the prison on Oct. 29 with no evident cause, detectives discovered that the woman had visited him two days before he died. The prison is located approximately 100 miles (161 kilometers) southwest of Detroit.

According to state police, the woman snuck a small object into the prison in her clothing and presented it to Wilson, who was later seen ingesting the object on film.

An autopsy discovered both shattered and unbroken balloons inside Wilson’s body, and state police claimed tests revealed the balloons contained meth. His death was due to a narcotic overdose while attempting to regurgitate the balloons.

State police stated the investigation into Wilson’s death was still underway, and they had “identified additional suspects connected to this plot to smuggle drugs into the prison.”
