Auburn woman admits in federal court to selling heroin to woman who died of overdose

An Auburn woman admitted in federal court this week to providing fentanyl-laced heroin to another woman who died after overdosing on the drug.

Allyson Hamilton, 26, of Auburn, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin or fentanyl. The guilty plea was entered in U.S. District Court in Binghamton.

The charge stems from an incident that occurred on Dec. 30, 2017 in Auburn. Auburn police and emergency personnel were dispatched to 8 Sheridan St. for a drug overdose. Attempts to revive the victim, 24-year-old Megan Condes, were unsuccessful. Condes died at Auburn Community Hospital on Dec. 31, 2017.

An investigation began and police learned that Condes ingested heroin containing fentanyl. The evidence in the case led police to identify Hamilton as a person of interest. She later became the prime suspect.
