Ny­gren’s daugh­ter may face charges

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - NEWS -

GREEN BAY - The drug over­dose death of a preg­nant wo­man and her un­born child led to the ar­rest of a leg­is­la­tor’s daugh­ter and her fi­ancé.

Cas­san­dra Ny­gren, 28, daugh­ter of state Rep. John Ny­gren (R-Marinette), and Shawn M. Gray, 33, pro­vided the drug that led to the June 2 death of Jen­nifer L. Skeen, 31, Brown County Chief Deputy Todd De­lain said Thurs­day.

Po­lice and res­cue squads ar­rived about 4:30 p.m. to the home on S. Web­ster Ave. in Al­louez to dis­cover Skeen dead, De­lain said.

An au­topsy and lab tests re­vealed Skeen died of a Fen­tanyl over­dose. The drug is an ad­di­tive to heroin but is much stronger.

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion over the fol­low­ing few months led to Ny­gren and Gray, and un­der­cover

agents con­ducted a con­trolled buy of heroin from them, De­lain said.

Deputies tried to ar­rest them Tues­day, but, with Gray at the wheel and Ny­gren with her 14month-old daugh­ter, the sus­pects fled, De­lain said. Deputies broke off the chase for safety rea­sons but ar­rested them near the car shortly af­ter­ward.

Ny­gren is fac­ing pos­si­ble charges of two counts of first-de­gree reck­less homi­cide-de­liver drugs, de­liv­ery of heroin, child ne­glect and main­tain­ing a drug traf­fick­ing place. She also faces a hand­ful of pos­ses­sion charges.
