Vincent Weiner was just 13. He was in seventh grade. He was a former Cub Scout and in his church youth group.
On the morning of June 4, the teenager was found dead in his bed. He had passed away during the night.
An autopsy has found that the New Jersey boy died from an overdose of fentanyl and heroin. His mother, Jamie Lund, announced the news on Facebook over the weekend, saying she was “feeling broken”.
“They found accidental death by acute intoxication by the combined effects of fentanyl and heroin,” she posted.
“Thirteen-year-old Vincent Weiner OVERDOSED on fentanyl-laced heroin. Anyone, ANYONE who has any information on where he got it, please please please contact me or Chief Leusner or any of the officers of the Middle Township police department. Whoever is supplying these babies with drugs needs to be stopped!
“My heart is broken, shattered into a million pieces.”
Lund told NBC that her son was a “happy, goofy kid”. But in the two weeks before his death, he’d begun behaving unusually at school. He’d also started skipping classes.
