Suspect involved in lethal drug distribution apprehended. From the desk of Chief Mike Justice: On 02/14/19, a 17-year-old female was found unresponsive in her home in Lebanon. She was later pronounced deceased and the proceeding autopsy listed her cause of death as acute fentanyl toxicity. Detective Bringhurst was able to determine that the lethal narcotics were purchased from Antwan Whitehead, of Nashville. In early July 2019, Whitehead was indicted with 2nd Degree Homicide for the distribution of narcotics that lead to the death of the victim. On 08/06/19, after a month of searching, US Marshals were able to locate Whitehead and apprehended him without incident. He was transport back to Wilson County for trial. He is being held on a $250,000 bond. The Lebanon Police Department will continue to pursue and prosecute those who distribute narcotics in our community, especially if they lead to the death of another.
