According to a news release, Marshfield police have requested charges against Justin James Drinka, 22, of Marshfield and Trenton Joseph Blume, 23, of Unity. Police say they believe Blume and Drinka supplied the fatal dose of heroin that killed Vanderwyst.

Police requested 1st degree reckless homicide/delivery of heroin/habitual criminality on both counts against Blume and 1st degree reckless homicide/delivery of heroin/drug offense within 1000 ft. of a school/manufacture and delivery of THC/manufacture and delivery of narcotics/possession of drug paraphernalia/habitual criminality on all counts against Drinka.

The Wood County District Attorney will make the decision on whether Blume and Drinka will face charges.
