Man faces felonies for allegedly delivering drug to woman who overdosed

- A Philadelphia man is charged with several crimes including drug delivery in connection to a woman’s death.

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office said the night before Renee Winslow was found dead in her Pottstown apartment on Jan. 29, “she had sent and received drug-related text messages with her heroin supplier, who said he would deliver four bags of purported heroin to her residence.”

Then, video found Harold Robert Burton went in and out of her apartment, and was the only person there until Winslow’s boyfriend found her dead from an overdose and called police.

The autopsy revealed she didn’t die from heroin, but the stronger fentanyl.

Burton, 36, is charged with drug delivery resulting in death, which could land him 40 years. He’s also charged with two other felonies: manufacture, delivery or possession of controlled substances, and criminal use of communications.

He is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
