Seminole County Grand Jury Issues Indictment

In Longwood Drug Murder Case

               The Seminole County Grand Jury issued an indictment today (June 13) charging TIMOTHY LEON WILSON JR. 20, with first degree murder for delivering a mixture of Heroin and Furanyl Fentanyl to Jesse Bardwell (29), who died of a drug overdose on April 4th, 2017.

               During Bardwell’s death investigation, Agents of the City County Investigative Bureau and Seminole County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Investigators, developed information that identified WILSON as the suspected source of the drugs taken by Bardwell.  In an undercover operation, agents met with and purchased heroin from WILSON resulting in his arrest on drug charges that same day, April 4th

 

               After a ruling by the Medical Examiner that Bardwell’s cause of death was a heroin and furanyl fentanyl overdose, Investigators arrested WILSON on June 12th for murder at the Seminole County Jail where he is being held without bond.

               The Grand Jury heard testimony from an agent of the City County Investigative Bureau and a Deputy Medical Examiner, before returning with an indictment for First Degree Murder, Sale of a Controlled Substance (Heroin), Possession of a Controlled Substance (Heroin), and Carrying a Concealed Firearm.

               In a statement State Attorney Archer said “This indictment is the most recent in the continuing effort by my office and Seminole County Law Enforcement to arrest and prosecute criminal drug dealers whose illegal trade continues to result the overdose deaths of people in our community.” He also said “We want them to know that selling dangerous drugs carries the consequence of potentially spending the rest of their lives in jail.”
