Former Angels worker Eric Prescott Kay was charged with conspiracy to distribute fentanyl in connection to the dying of pitcher Tyler Skaggs.

In a press release from the U.S. Lawyer’s Workplace for the Northern District of Texas, district legal professional Erin Nealy Cox confirmed the 45-year-old was indicted in courtroom on Friday, Aug. 7.

Based on a prison grievance written by Drug Enforcement Administration Particular Agent Geoffrey Lindenberg, Skaggs texted Kay, asking him to carry him “only a few” capsules to his Texas lodge room on Jun. 30, 2019. This was corroborated with lodge key card information and a colleague who claimed Kay had admitted to visiting Skagg’s lodge room that evening.

Skaggs was discovered useless in his lodge room the following morning, July 1, 2019.

An post-mortem later decided the Angels pitcher died after choking on his personal vomit, which was attributable to a deadly mixture of opioids and alcohol. In Friday’s press launch, authorities added, “However for the fentanyl, Mr. Skaggs wouldn’t have died.”
