A drug dealer was charged with second-degree murder in connection with a 2017 overdose death of a man at a motel in Greenville, according to a press release from the Greenville Police Department.
On Wednesday, members of GPD’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team, State Bureau of Investigation Missing Person and Fugitive Task Force, among others, arrested Floyd Terry Thorpe Jr., 25, of Henderson, North Carolina and charge him, according to GPD.
According to the release, GPD officers were dispatched to Affordable Suites, 101 Dansey Road, on Thursday, December 7, 2017, in reference to a death investigation. When officers arrived at the motel, they found Vincent Rodenwold, 30, dead from an apparent drug overdose.
In the last week, toxicology results revealed a “combined Heroin and Fluoroisobutyrylfentanyl Toxicity” were the cause of Rodenwold’s overdose, according to the release.
The release said GPD’s Major Crimes Unit was able to identify Thorpe as Rodenwold’s drug supplier after a thorough investigation. Thorpe was charged in connection with Rodenwold’s death and booked into the Granville County Detention Center under a $200,000 bond.
