A Lake Villa man and Antioch man are now both charged with selling fentanyl-laced pills to a Cary man, causing his death in March.
Keenan R. Queen, 21, of the 22300 block of West Morton Drive in Lake Villa, and Jordan C. Schwamb, 21, of the 200 block of Cedarwood Lane in Antioch, were both charged with one count of drug-induced homicide, a Class X felony.
A motion filed by McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Brette Dunbar said that Vincent Isola, 28, of Cary, was found deceased in his residence in Cary on March 4.
Officers found approximately five blue pills believe to be generic Percocet near Isola’s body, the motion said.
Officers searched Isola’s phone and social media which led to evidence showing Isola arranged to purchase illegal narcotics, including Percocet, from Schwamb, according to the motion.
Queen is accused of assisting in the transaction by arranging for Isola to purchase the drugs from Schwamb, the motion said.
The pills recovered in Isola’s residence were tested by the Illinois State Police Crime Lab and came back positive for fentanyl.
Isola’s cause of death was determined to be from the effects of fentanyl.
“Vince was a proud and loving father who is survived by his 4-year-old son, Cameron and the love of his life, Ariel,” Isola’s obituary read. A GoFundMe raised over $11,000 for the man’s son.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case and an arrest warrant was issued for Schwamb on August 20 and an arrest warrant was issued for Queen on September 14.
Schwamb was arrested and transported to the McHenry County Jail on September 2 and Queen was arrested on Thursday, jail records show.
Schwamb’s bond was set at $100,000 while Queen’s bond was set at $500,000.
