On February 6, 2013, Toms River, NJ police received a 9-1-1 call regarding an unresponsive female. That female, Jamie Caravella, 23, was found unresponsive on the floor of a Pine Crest Drive home. She was not breathing, had no pulse and shortly thereafter, pronounced dead on the scene. Police recovered empty heroin bags and a needle near Caravella when they were at the scene.
Now, here is where things get interesting. When the autopsy was conducted, the medical examiner found that the cause of death was a negative reaction to heroin. In simpler terms, an overdose. But, according to reports, the police considered the cause of death a “critical piece” of evidence needed to warrant charges against Paul Robinson, 24,of Toms River, Rufus Young, 41, of Freehold and Pedro Valentin, 23, of Perth Amboy. It is not known how Robinson, Young and Valentin are all linked to the drug related death, but, the police must have serious evidence against them. Young and Valentin were served their arrest warrants in NJ, but Robinson had fled the state. He was later arrested in Mebane, NC as he attempted to flee.
All three men are being held on a $200,000 CASH bond only.
