Police Make Arrests in Heroin-Related Deaths

On June 27, Harrison Police concluded an investigation into two separate deaths. The authorities ruled that both deaths were the result of snorting or injecting tainted heroin from the same supplier.

Police came to this conclusion after arresting three heroin dealers associated with the supplier. Rachael Brissett, only 17, was charged with sale of a controlled substance and for providing one of the victims with the heroin that killed him. Police are holding Brissett at Westchester County Jail. Along with her, Alexandra Derose, 22, was arrested for sale of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance and is being held at Westchester County Jail.

Following these women’s arrests, police arrested the infamous Bronx heroin dealer Jeffrey “Flee” McCaskill, 27. McCaskill is potentially facing, in addition to many other charges, two counts of involuntary manslaughter. He is currently being held at Westchester County Jail along with Brissett, Derose, and three other colleagues.
