Two Men Arrested In Fentanyl Death Of Transgender Activist Star Cecilia Gentili

It was never exactly "safe" to be a recreational drug user.

Lacing and spiking drugs has been around for a long time.

But with Joe Biden's lax border policies and the explosion in popularity of fentanyl, it's more dangerous than ever.

"Pose" actress and transgender activist Cecilia Gentili just found that out the hard way.

"Cecilia Gentili, a prominent activist and leader of the New York transgender community was tragically poisoned in her Brooklyn home from fentanyl-laced heroin," said Breon Peace, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. "Today, the alleged perpetrators who sold the deadly dose of drugs to Gentili have been arrested."

"Fentanyl is a public health crisis. Our office will spare no effort in the pursuit of justice for the many New Yorkers who have lost loved ones due to this lethal drug."

Two men, Michael Juilan and Antonio Venti, have already been charged with distributing the heroin and fentanyl that caused the death of Gentili.

Gentili's partner had found Cecilia's body in her bedroom on February 6.

Officials eventually confirmed that the death was the result of a lethal combination of "fentanyl, heroin, xylazine, and cocaine."

"Today’s indictment delivers a strong message to anyone who profits from poisoning our communities with illicit drugs: There are dedicated investigators, across multiple agencies, working tirelessly to disrupt your shameful industry by pinpointing the source of these unlawful substances," said NYPD commissioner Edward A. Caban. "“It is imperative that we continue to hold distributors accountable for their callous actions. I commend the NYPD’s partners at the DEA and the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York for their ongoing commitment to this critical mission."

According to text messages and other evidence, "Venti sold Gentili the mixture of drugs on Feb. 5 and Kuilan gave Venti the narcotics. After searching Kuilan’s apartment, authorities found 'hundreds of baggies of fentanyl, a handgun and ammunition.'"
