Age: 25 | State: California | County: Sacramento | Case Status: No Investigation
I’ve been in every single therapy session with Marek and his psychiatrist said he is ‘complicated BUT concrete’. This means he doesn’t deviate from what’s ingrained in his mind, his schedule or how he does things. He is ROUTINE.
Days leading to his death:
On 11/23/ 2021 My husband and I went to the store. Marek called us at approximately 5:00 p.m. to tell us that he was scared to death and that someone was trying to kill him. Marek said he was going to die. He didn’t say how he thought he was going to die, but we left our grocery basket in the grocery aisle and hurried back. We found out later that he thought someone was going to shoot him. He told me and texted me that he was going to die.
I went inside the house and my son had so much anxiety that I didn’t want to bring it up that night to ask him what happened. We had no idea he was going to die within a 3 day period. He died on 11/26/2021.
Days after Marek’s death:
On 11/29/2021, I contacted the Sacramento police because it kept bothering me that they never came out to process his room, never asked any question or anything. I spoke to the SACPD Homicide Division incessantly. I told him that it bothers me that they don’t seem to be interested if in case there may be foul play involved in Marek’s death. I told the detectives from the beginning that I thought it might be homicide, and my words were ignored. At that time, I didn’t know what Carfentanil was. When I heard that it was 100x more potent than Fentanyl, I was floored! I was told they would ultimately rule on the side of ‘overdose’, and to expect it. This was told to me before the Coroner’s report came back to us. Marek didn’t deserve to die. Marek had no idea what he was given to take home to ingest.
More needs to be done to protect vulnerable victims to this increasingly deadly poison. Dealers know what they’re dealing and they’re putting profit before lives. All deaths are worthy of an investigation and the stigma regarding drug addiction needs to change. If any of the investigators would have checked Marek’s phone, there would be no doubt that there are people out there that needs to answer to his death.
