Search Warrant Filed in 2-Year Fatal Drug Overdose Case

Waukesha police are looking into possible homicide charges against a Milwaukee man for the death of a Waukesha man who purchased heroin from him two years ago.

According to a search warrant filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court on Tuesday, police are investigating a 52-year-old Milwaukee man in connection for in the death of Andrew Debroux, who died Jan. 20, 2010, from a heroin overdose inside a home in the 900 block of Eales Avenue.

According to the warrant:

Debroux and his girlfriend went to Walmart Jan. 19, 2010, to look at video games and televisions, then went to the suspect's home near North 21st Street and West Townsend Street on the north side of Milwaukee to purchase $400 worth of heroin.

After making the purchase, the suspect told Debroux to be careful with the heroin as it was different from normal patches he received. The girlfriend stuck the heroin in her bra and they drove back to Waukesha.

The girlfriend told investigators Debroux was acting “more out of it” than usual after taking the heroin and she woke him up at one point because she was concerned for his safety.

The next day, the couple got into an argument after his girlfriend wanted to take the heroin while she went to work because Debroux had no control about using heroin, but she ended up leaving it behind.

Later that day, she received a call from Debroux’s sister telling her that he was dead.

In Feburary 2010, West Allis police executed a search warrant inside the suspect’s home in the 3400 block of North 36th Street and at that time he admitted to selling heroin to “three or four people” he had met in Waukesha when he used to live there.
