Wesley was an amazing man. He loved every sport he tried, every course he learned, every person he met, and every family member he had. Wesley was truly a gentle giant. He was naturally athletic and excelled at every game he played. He had a huge heart and always came to the aid of anyone who needed it. He was fiercely loyal and never hesitated to protect his family and friends. He was a self-proclaimed “Momma’s boy” and didn’t care what anyone thought. While playing football in college, Wesley injured his knee. Our family doctor prescribed opioids. After a 7 or 8 year struggle, including 5+ rehabs, IOPs, halfway houses Wesley finally found a 9 month faith-based rehab that stuck. He had found his soulmate and was prepared to settle down and start a family. Two years later, he lost his battle. He found a dealer online and bought heroin. His father and I found him dead the next morning of pure fentanyl poisoning.
Although local law enforcement did no investigation, we pursued the case through the DEA. Hugo Margenat-Castro, the man who intentionally murdered my son and many others, is currently serving a 20 year sentence in Federal Prison for Trafficking Resulting in Death or Serious Bodily Injury.
