COLUMBIA – Jon "Doom" Washington, who police said injected heroin into a 16-year-old who later died, was arrested Thursday in St. Louis on charges of distribution of a Schedule 1 drug to a minor.
Washington was charged in federal court Wednesday in connection with the death of Morgan Myers, who was found dead April 3 at the Providence Suites motel, 1718 N. Providence Road.
Washington, 27, will be transported to Jefferson City for a hearing in federal court, said Don Ledford, a spokesman for U.S. attorney Tammy Dickinson. As of Thursday night, the date of Washington's court appearance was unknown.
According to an affidavit from Steve Mattas, a special agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration, an informant told Columbia police "C-Bo" and "Doom" had injected Myers with the heroin.
According to the affidavit, Washington admitted to Columbia police that he injected Myers with heroin, and he called 911 after 4 a.m. when he didn't hear her heartbeat.
