After Fentanyl Death of 1-Year Old in Bronx Day Care 2 Are Detained in SDNY, 1 on Lam

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 19 – Following the death of a one-year old baby by fentanyl, on September 19, 2023 the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York charged Grei Mendez and Carlisto Acevedo Brito.

The charge was and is narcotics possession with intent to distribute resulting in death and conspiracy to distribute narcotics resulting in death in connection with the overdose of four children under the age of three, one of whom died, at a daycare facility in the Bronx on September 15, 2023.

  Inner City Press went to the SDNY press conference and asked US Attorney Damian Williams if his office would be seeking pre-trial detention (yes) and if those upstream who sold the fentanyl would be charged with the death. No answer, at least not yet. Video here.

  The duo was set to be presented in SDNY Magistrates Court, to which Inner City Press next turned. It was present there for hours. Thread here:

Brito is brought out, already in MDC tan uniform. 

Magistrate Judge Jennifer Willis now presiding in US v Brito

 AUSA Thompson: We seek detention. Defense: We consent at this time.

 Brito is led back into the holding cell [and later to MDC, where SBF is complaining about lack of vegan meals and fast enough laptop. Brito, it seems clear, will not be exempted from prisoner count like Sam is]

OK - now fentanyl daycare Ms Mendez has been brought out. She is crying.

 Federal Defender: Ms Mendez is a 36 year old legal resident. She worked in a restaurant. She is a single custodial parent, now that her husband has fled.

Judge: I am going to detain you. Mendez: Aye, no! [crying]

Federal Defender goes back on the record to say she has diabetes. Both sides agree: she will be in MDC
