A Pompano Beach man who sold Fentanyl to a man in Coral Springs was charged with his death.
On September 16, 2020, Salomon Jules Theoc, 26, distributed the narcotic to Callie Harper in front of the Walmart located at 3801 Turtle Creek Drive, Coral Springs.
Shortly after the sale, Harper overdosed and was transported via Coral Springs Fire Rescue to Northwest Medical Center.
Despite the best efforts of hospital staff, Harper was unable to be saved.
Detective Frank Randazzo was assigned the death investigation. He worked this criminal investigation with the Coral Springs Police Department Narcotics Unit, the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office, the FBI Violent Crimes Taskforce, and the Broward County State Attorney’s Office.
With the assistance of a witness, digital forensic evidence, and video surveillance footage from the crime scene, Detective Randazzo presented this case to the Broward County State Attorney’s Office with the request of presenting this case to a grand jury.
