Blake Edward Wilson, the disbarred Imperial Beach lawyer who died in San Diego County custody last week, apparently took an overdose of heroin and fentanyl after obtaining a lethal combination of the drugs inside jail, prosecutors say.
According to documents released by the District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday, Wilson bought or somehow acquired the drugs from another inmate in the Central Jail. That inmate has been charged with three felonies related to the incident.
Taylor Barnes, 21, is facing new charges of selling or furnishing a controlled substance, possession for sale of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance or drug paraphernalia in jail or prison, the records show.
