Bolingbrook resident faces drug-related homicide charges
BOLINGBROOK — The Will County State's Attorney's Office has approved homicide charges for a Bolingbrook resident accused of supplying heroin to another Bolingbrook man who died of an overdose in September.
Emerson Harris, 24, of 443 Mallview Lane, Bolingbrook, is facing drug-induced homicide charges.
The allegations stem from a September 2012 incident surrounding the death of 28-year-old Bolingbrook resident Chad Conley. Harris allegedly sold heroin to Conley, who later died from heroin intoxication, according to the Will County State's Attorney's office.
About 8:24 p.m. Sept. 19, Bolingbrook police responded to a report of a person lying unresponsive in the parking lot of the Bolingbrook Wendy's, 396 S. Bolingbrook Drive, according to Bolingbrook Lt. Mike Rompa. Upon arriving, police found Conley unresponsive and not breathing, Rompa said.
Police administered CPR until Bolingbrook Fire Department medics arrived, and the subject was transported to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital for treatment, where he was subsequently pronounced dead about 9 p.m. that day, according to police.
Harris faces one count of drug-induced homicide charges, a class X felony carrying a possible sentence of six to 30 years in prison, according to the state's attorney's office. His bail was set at $1 million.
