Turcios faces multiple drug charges including criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Authorities have not released the name of the deceased or when and where the overdose took place.

Nassau County police announced the creation of a virtual "OD Map," which not only pinpoints where overdoses occur but officials also hope it will lead them to the dealers and help keep them off the streets.
