Ok guys, can you give the family a little time to figure some of this out for theirselves first. Yes it was Larry Johnson or (Farley) depending on how you know him, and there was no crime in anyones neighborhood. The family still does not even know the cause of death...please give him mom some respect.

Ok everyone. This was my brother who passed away. It was a HEART ATTACK nothing more nothing less!!! We had his layout last night and we are burying him today. My family is very much grieving and would appreciate respect and rumors to stop. I have lived in granite my whole life and as much as this place is hoosierville I love it. Lately almost daily we are on the news for something horrible w/bad parents to abuse and drugs. This is not one of those cases!!! Yes he was David Farley's stepson. And please remember these posts are PUBLIC!! So that means anyone can see them including his CHILDREN!! So please I ask to be respecful I am sure noone would want their children while grieving too see people question if it was drugs or a crime. Thank you. RIP Larry we love you and miss you!!

No problem. This is not big Larry Johnson who is dating Jackie. This is Larry Wayne Johnson also known as Larry Wayne Farley. His dad is Leonard Johnson and hismom/step dad is Judy and David Farley. And again we appreciate any rumors to stop and appreciate prayers for our family at this time today is a day none of us wish was happening. Before posting think if you would want your grieving family to have to read it.

I agree wholeheartedly. Leave this fmily alone. Let them have their time. I live across the street from his nephew Josh. This wasn't a bad family and they need peaceful time to grieve.Peace be with all of you.

GRANITE CITY -- Two people face charges in an overdose death involving the narcotic fentanyl.

William J. Smith, 48, was found dead Tuesday morning at his home on Division Street by a family member.

Coroner and sheriff's investigators found empty fentanyl packaging at his home. According to the Madison County Sheriff's Department, the investigation led to his neighbor, 28-year-old Cory Armbruster, as the person who gave him the fentanyl.

Police said Armbruster in turn bought the fentanyl from Becky Chandler, 30, of University Drive, Granite City.

Both Chandler and Armbruster have been charged with delivery of a controlled substance. Fentanyl is a narcotic approximately 100 times more potent than morphine.

"It's rare that we have fentanyl overdoses, as it's not easily found on the streets," said Capt. Mike Dixon with the Madison County Sheriff's Department. "It's not as common as heroin and other controlled substances."

In fact, fentanyl is most often used to treat hospice patients in extreme pain, usually dispersed slowly through a patch. Dixon said they are currently tracking the origins of the fentanyl that killed Smith.

The Madison County Coroner's office reported that Smith's autopsy was inconclusive as investigators await toxicology reports. Dixon said that if the toxicology indicates fatal levels of fentanyl in Smith's body, and the coroner's office concluded that Smith died of a fentanyl overdose, additional charges could be presented -- including drug-induced homicide.

Both defendants are in custody at the Madison County Jail. Circuit Judge Kyle Napp set bail at $50,000 each.
