MILFORD - A joint investigation by the Pike County Detectives, Pennsylvania State Police, Eastern Pike Regional, and the Pike County Coroner’s office resulted in the arrest of three individuals on heroin trafficking charges which resulted in three deaths. The deceased are Jennifer Bosch, 27, Deniz “Nicole” Duman, 32, and Erna Abramowski, 50.

According to the charges, three deaths occurred in Pike County, Pennsylvania between November 26, 2017 and December 14, 2017.  According to Pike County Coroner Christopher Brighton all three deaths were a result of mixed drug toxicity.  Evidence collected at all three apparent drug overdoses consisted of drug related paraphernalia, including glassine packets all marked with the same packaging stamp “Sinaloa”.

Between December 2017 and January 2018, in Delaware Township, Pike County Detectives conducted three controlled purchases of heroin utilizing a confidential informant from Katie Woolsey, 31, currently incarcerated in the Pike County Correctional Facility.  During two of the purchases, the packets of heroin purchased had the same stamp, and name as the heroin that was found at the three overdose deaths in the area. Pike County Detectives sent the suspected heroin to the Pennsylvania State Police Crime Laboratory for testing. The results for the first two purchases were positive for heroin, as well acetyl fentanyl, and fentanyl. The last purchase of heroin tested positive for heroin, fentanyl and tramadol.

Woolsey is charged with three counts of delivery of a controlled substance resulting in a death, three counts of criminal conspiracy to delivery of a controlled substance resulting in a death, and several other felonies.  

Gianna Rose is charged with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance resulting in a death, two counts of criminal conspiracy to delivery of a controlled substance resulting in a death and several other felonies.

All three are in the Pike County Correctional Facility in lieu of $500,000 bail.  Preliminary hearings are scheduled for August 14.
