Authorities say on February 18th, the Egg Harbor Township Police Department responded to a home after receiving a report of an unresponsive man. There, cops found the victim, 33-year-old Jeffrey Schneider of Egg Harbor Township, who was dead.

Shill's office says, "the joint investigation of the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns and Narcotics Unit and the Egg Harbor Township Police Department determined that Schneider ingested a lethal dose of fentanyl which he purchased from Castillo."

Castillo was arrested a week at his home in EHT; he has been lodged at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
