A Springfield man has been charged for his role in the death of a man whose body was found in a car at Southwind Park last October.
Prosecutors have charged 27-year-old Gary Clark with drug-induced homicide.
They believe Clark provided the heroin that led to the overdose death of Daniel Buehrle, whose body was discovered at the park just hours before a Halloween event there.
State’s Attorney John Milhiser tells the SJ-R that such a charge is unusual, but says it allows authorities to go after people who are peddling dangerous substances.
Clark could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
