An autopsy performed by Burlington County Medical Examiner Dr. Ian Hood determined the victim, Kimberly Bell, died of fentanyl and cocaine toxicity.

The investigation revealed the drugs that caused the fatal overdose had been purchased from Brown. The investigation also led to charges against Rashan Demby, 34, of the 1200 block of Langham Avenue in Camden. He was indicted along with Brown on two counts of Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance (Third Degree), Distribution of a Controlled Dangerous Substance (Third Degree) and Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance (Third Degree).
