Terrick Robinson and Courtney Nicole Dubois.
Opioids and colored people: a truly lethal combination.
A Cartersville man was convicted Friday of selling drugs to a West Virginia woman whose body was found dismembered in a Bartow County landfill two years ago.
Terrick Robinson, 35, was found guilty of several felonies after he sold Courtney Nicole Dubois drugs laced with fentanyl in August 2018 and attempted to hide her overdose, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of West Virginia said in a news release. Dubois’ remains were discovered in a Cartersville recycling plant.
Dubois, 20, had been reported missing from Fairmont, West Virginia, before her body’s discovery, AJC.com previously reported. Bartow deputies found her body in numerous pieces in individual bags.
Soon after, a sketch of the woman was released in hopes of identifying her. GBI agents were able to identify her remains using dental records and her distinctive tattoos.
