Chris Cosey was arrested yesterday for second degree murder. he sold heroin to someone that overdosed. what do you all think about this?? there is a debate on Facebook going on about this. some say he deserves to fry, some say he didnt force her to do the drugs and he is not directly responsible for her death, therefor should not be charged with second degree murder.

dealing in pot it was a major offense.Now we have
heroin dealers and deaths from it.Rolla has sure
grown,but in the wrong directions.....

This guy is dangerous has been for years. I wonder how many of the other heroin overdoses he can be linked to?

This guy deserved to be locked up. Hes a bad man. He hurts his ol'lady countless times. He doesn't even care for his own son. All he cares about is himself. its sad when a 5 year old is scared of guns because of his own dad. Hes a terrible person and deserves to sit in prison.

Whether he's a bad man or not, doesn't mean he should be sitting behind bars for the rest of his life. Unless he physically injected the woman with heroin without consent, then I'm not sure how he can be convicted. More than likely, she injected herself with the heroin, and probably had been doing it for years. I don't know this for a fact, but it seems plausible. If it wasn't him she got it from, I'm sure she would have gotten it from someone else. That's what junkies do. NOW, if the police had probably cause to invade his house and find heroin in his possession, then of course, penalize him for not being in content with the law and possession of a controlled substance.

Scenario: A person eats McDonalds every day. A couple of double cheese burgers every day, with some fries, Coke, etc. This person ends up having very high cholesterol and clogged arteries. The person has a heart attack and dies because of the poor choice to eat fast food daily. The person eating it KNOWS better than to eat fast food every day, and knows that sooner or later it will catch up with them. Will the law penalize McDonalds for the death of the said McDonalds junkie?

Yes they should penalize McDonalds they kill more people with their fatty food than drug dealers do. Problem is they have more money so they can do what they want. America gotta love it.

What & drug dealers don't have money? When was the
last time you saw someone on the edge of death from
McDonald's withdraw? Have you ever seen tracks on
someones arms from injecting milk shakes? Have you
ever seen a family tore apart from a Big Mac addiction?I guarantee you this..if I'm out on the
streets of Rolla and I run across someone peddling
heroin..I will end up being the one behind bars....

I agree. You can't blame somebody for your addiction. She chose to do the heroin, he just sold it to her.

I have mixed emotions about this topic. I agree with you all, in one way or another. i believe he was indirectly involved in her death, not directly. I cant stand this guy, he is really the worst of the worst, and Im glad he is not on the streets of Rolla anymore. He is a drug user, drug dealer, thief, woman beater, etc. I dont think too many people will be sad to see him go, except the other scum he hangs out with. BUT..... I dont believe it would be fair for him to spend the rest of his life in prison for this womans death. like i said, i dont believe he is directly involved. unless he stuck the needle in her arm and injected her, he is not DIRECTLY responsible for her death and second degree murder is not the right charge. but the law is the law, and drug dealers know the consequences of their actions. when you are dealing with these lethal drugs (heroin,meth,crack) there are serious consequences. If they prosecuted him for all his other crimes, it would end up as a life sentence anyway.

I think they are gonna throw the book at him. Black man, extensive criminal history, addict, and it was a white woman...yeah, he is outta here...

If in fact he was involved in the death of this individual,{selling a dangerous illegal substance} yes, he may be found guility for contributing to the death.{second degree} Although, if there had been premediation, the death would be considered first degree murder.{Usually drug dealers do not want their "customers" dead}

Brandon Clark?Cody Henson? And the other people who od'd this past year? What about all the people who od'd but didnt die? What about the people who the dealers sold battery acid to or cut the dope he sold them? This guy can probaly be linked to most of this!

On January 24, 2011, as a result of a six month investigation by investigators from the Rolla Police Departmentís Division of Criminal Investigations Unit and the South Central Drug Task Force, Christopher L. Cosey, age 38 of Rolla was arrested on a warrant charging him with 2nd Degree Murder.

Th...is arrest and charge stems from a July 05, 2010 death investigation in which Dawn M. Sanborn, age 38 of Rolla was found deceased inside a Rolla residence due to a heroin overdose. During the course of this investigation it was revealed that Mr. Cosey was responsible for supplying Ms. Sanborn with the heroin which resulted in her death.

Christopher Cosey is currently incarcerated in the Phelps County Jail in lieu of a $500,000.00 bond.

Rolla Police Chief Mark Kearse commended the work of the investigators. "We will continue to aggressively pursue those who are dealing and using this poison in our community. As stated on numerous occasions, narcotics dealers are one of our main targets in combating crime and dismay in our community. Drugs kill and ruin the lives of families, who have loved ones, who continue to involve their selves with these lethal/illegal narcotics."

The charge for which Christopher L. Cosey has been charged with, are mere accusations and are not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of these charges must be presented to a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

If he is a dealer he's worst than a murderer.
Hope he gets life.

Is McDonalds illegally selling a controlled substance that has a well documented history of causing the death of it's user after one use? How many times has French Fry overdose been written under cause of death?
If he was driving the get away car in a robbery where his partner killed this girl he'd be charged with her death. So why is his knowing selling a deadly drug not make him some what responsible for her death?

In the case of certain drugs,heroin being one of them,if you
sell them you are nothing but a dealer of pain,heartache & death
Its very hard to have such an addiction without a dealer and a
dealer is probably what got you hooked to begin with.So if
Cosey wasn't the one that got her addicted,he was still willing
to feed it and that makes him nothing but a grim reaper..
