Man charged in Rochester teen's overdose death was a DEA informant


ROCHESTER - Mark Ross, the man accused of giving Eve Tarmey a deadly dose of fentanyl, was working for the Drug Enforcement Administration as an informant at the time of the teenager's death.

This surprising new development was just reported by the Union Leader, where a reporter uncovered the link in court documents related to another case.

NH1 News spoke with Kim Haas, the reporter who found the court documents and revealed the link between the DEA and Ross. She speaks with NH1's KeKe Vencill in this exclusive interview.

The new details about Ross surfaced when another man, Lorenzo Ramirez, claimed the DEA entrapped him because Ross had introduced him to an undercover officer. Ramirez was subsequently arrested for selling drugs.

Ramirez is expected to go on trial next year. Meanwhile, Ross faces charges in connection with Tarmey's death.
