Fentanyl dealer in Brooklyn tied to overdose death
Brooklyn drug dealer Johnnie (Nut) Monroe is heading to prison after being tied to the fentanyl overdose death of a young mother. Judge Brian Cogan sentenced the drug trafficker to a full 97-month term.
Earlier this month, Cogan sent the convicted ringleader of the crew, Edward (Super Ed) Carrillo, to prison for 10 1/2 years.
Brooklyn federal prosecutors said they have recordings of Monroe as he broke the news to Carrillo last year about a West Virginia woman who died — “went out” — after ingesting the opioids he’d distributed.
Even though he knew his batches were killing people, Monroe continued to ship the product, mailing another package with hundreds of fentanyl pills to a West Virginia co-conspirator two weeks after learning the news of the fatal overdose.
