Two women charged in drug death of Edgerton man
MADISON—Two Dane County women were charged Tuesday in the death of an Edgerton man in June.
Joshua Hendrickson was found dead in a pickup truck in a restaurant parking lot in Stoughton the morning of June 3, according to a criminal complaint.
Angel R. Hendrickson, 28, Stoughton, is charged with party to the crimes of first-degree reckless homicide and delivery of narcotics—the anxiety drug lorazepam.
Kathryn S. Dustin, 35, Madison, is charged with first-degree reckless homicide, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Hendrickson, Joshua's cousin, had joined Joshua at a park-and-ride lot on Stoughton Road in Madison the night before to meet Dustin so Joshua could sell Dustin lorazepam, according to Angel Hendrickson, as related in the criminal complaint.
Dustin and Joshua left the lot and returned with Joshua unconscious, Angel told investigators.
Joshua had shot up heroin supplied by Dustin during their exchange, according to the complaint.
The women tried to revive him without success. So they drove him in Dustin's Jeep to the restaurant parking lot, where they put him in his pickup truck, the complaint states.
The two women drove away, telling each other they hoped he would be OK, according to the complaint.
Joshua was showing signs of life when they left him, the complaint indicates.
Dustin also was charged with bail jumping because she violated the terms of her release in a previous case. She had been charged in March with possession of narcotics.
