Hopkinsville woman arrested for manslaughter after fentanyl overdose death
MADISONVILLE, Ky. (WFIE) - A 42-year-old Hopkinsville woman was arrested late Wednesday night after police say drugs she sold led to an overdose death.
In the early hours of April 1, 2021, Hopkins County Sheriff deputies responded to the 1700 block of Edwards Street for a medical emergency and found Jenny Doolin unresponsive on the floor.
We’re told despite efforts of medical personnel, Doolin died after being taken to the Baptist Health Hospital in Madisonville.
Detectives investigated Doolin’s death as an overdose and uncovered messages between Doolin and Tanisha Dhaliwal the night before her death.
The text conversation showed that Doolin was planning to buy Percocet 30′s from Dhaliwal, according to the Madisonville-Hopkins County Narcotics Unit.
