Death – Obituary

EAU CLAIRE COUNTY (WQOW) – A Chippewa Falls woman with a history of drug charges is now charged in Eau Claire County for allegedly supplying the drugs that killed a man in 2020. 

33-year-old Chelsey Leith was charged with first degree reckless homicide and is being prosecuted as a repeat offender.

According to the criminal complaint:

Altoona officers were called to a home in February of 2020 for a pulseless, non-breathing male. He was pronounced dead.

Drug paraphernalia was found in his room and an autopsy found dozens of needle injection marks on his arms. The autopsy ruled he likely died from an illegal drug overdose.

Officers found a Facebook messenger conversation between the man and Leith from the day he died showing that Leith supplied the drugs just prior to his death. An arrest warrant was issued Wednesday for her arrest.

If convicted of all charges, Leith could be sentenced to decades behind bars.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
