Palm Desert Woman Pleads Not Guilty in Man’s Fentanyl Death

City News Service

PALM DESERT (CNS) – A 39-year-old Palm Desert woman accused of selling
fentanyl that led to a man’s death pleaded not guilty to a murder charge today.

Tiffany Wright was arrested on May 3 by personnel from the Riverside
County Sheriff’s Department’s Overdose Death Investigations and Narcotics Unit
and the Coachella Valley Narcotics Task Force.

Wright was booked into the John Benoit Detention Center and has since
been charged with one felony count of murder.

On March 20, deputies from the sheriff’s Palm Desert station responded
to a call about an unresponsive adult male in the 46000 block of Ryway
Place. They determined that 32-year-old Cameron Bridges was dead at the scene.

His death was later determined to be caused by fentanyl poisoning,
according to the sheriff’s department. Fentanyl is 100 times stronger than
morphine, according to authorities.

Wright is slated to appear at the Larson Justice Center in Indio on
July 20.

The sheriff’s department urged anyone who has additional information
about the ongoing investigation to contact master investigator Robert Cornett
at 951-955-1700.
