TC Man Arrested for Deadly Drug Overdose

Posted: Updated:

After months of investigation, a Traverse City man is accused of selling another man the drugs that killed him.

Daniel White of Kalkaska was found dead in Boardman Township back in October.

The medical examiner ruled he died from a methadone overdose.

On Wednesday, Daniel Delater was charged with giving White the drugs that killed him.

The Sheriff said employees at an assisted living facility where white was living were key to finding their suspect.

"The employees cooperated, witnesses were interviewed and information was submitted to the prosecutor. Then, he issued the warrant based on statements of the witnesses," said David Israel, Kalkaska County Sheriff.

Delater pleaded not guilty and his bond is set at $2 million.
