Woman accused of giving drug that led to deadly overdose | news

A Sanford woman is accused of providing a drug to a Lee County man who overdosed in 2020.

Samantha Michelle Goins, 29, was arrested Tuesday after the grand jury indicted her on a charge of felony death by distribution, according to a news release from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

She is accused of providing a drug that led to the death of Cory Dale Moore, 32. Moore, who lived at his grandmother’s home on Pickard Road, was last seen Sept. 3, 2020, in the front yard of the residence.

Family and friends search the area for a week before filing a report with law enforcement, according to Sherry Galvin-Bellamy, who is Moore’s aunt, said at the time.

She said Moore had a history of drug abuse and had gone to a drug rehabilitation facility. He returned to Sanford at the end of August and within days, had asked someone to bring him drugs, Galvin-Bellamy has said.

The Sheriff’s Office launched an intense search in the area for at least two days but found no trace of Moore, authorities said.

Is Car Leasing Dead?

In February 2021, a couple looking at property in the area between Pickard and Carbonton roads discovered human remains that were taken to the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for a positive identification.

The remains were identified as Moore and the cause of death was determined to be a drug overdose.

After a thorough investigation, the Sheriff’s Office Detective Division presented evidence to the grand jury which resulted in the indictment, according to the news release.

Goins, who was found in possession of methamphetamine when she was taken into custody and may face more charges, the release said.

Goins is being held in the Lee County Detention Center with bail set at $250,000.
