After a 17-year-old in Denton passed away from a fentanyl overdose, an 18-year-old is accused of murder. Denton police responded to an overdose complaint in the 7500 block of Barrymore Road on September 25. Ryan Erwin, 17, was discovered unconscious. After being brought to the hospital, he was declared deceased.

What Happened?

Erwin’s cause of death was determined by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office to be a combination of fentanyl and diphenhydramine poisoning.

Investigators discovered proof that on the morning of his demise, Erwin purchased fentanyl from 18-year-old Zakkary McReynolds.

McReynolds was taken into custody by the Denton Police Department, the Denton County Sheriff’s Office, and the US Marshals Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force on Tuesday, January 16. He was charged with murder.

Since the new state law went into effect on September 1, 2023, which made it illegal to distribute fentanyl that causes death, there have been three fentanyl murder arrests in Denton. Right now, McReynolds is housed in the Denton Jail. There is no set bail amount.
