An autopsy revealed that the female died due to fentanyl intoxication.

Further investigation lead to identifying the suspect. Crooks is a 28-year-old from Columbia.

Crooks was located and taken into custody on Oct. 7 by Miller County detectives with the assistance of the Boone County Sherriff’s Office.

According to the probable cause statement, while in custody, Crooks said he brought a medicine capsule with fentanyl inside of it and gave it to the female. He then told her how much to take.
