Grafton man’s overdose, charges against woman accused of supplying drug part of an alarming trend in county

    Ozaukee County officials didn’t need any more fodder for Wednesday’s heroin summit, but they got it in the overdose death of a 31-year-old Grafton man and the first drug-related homicide charges of 2014.

    Joel C. Rebarchik died with a syringe in his hand Saturday, Jan. 18, in a basement bathroom of a house in Grafton, according to authorities.

    The person accused of delivering the heroin believed to have killed Rebarchik, 33-year-old Kirsten A. Nadolski, was charged with first-degree reckless homicide last week.

    Nadolski, who authorities said is from Cudahy but had been living at a Franklin motel, is also charged with one felony count of bail jumping. She was awaiting trial in Milwaukee County on a felony drug charge when she allegedly delivered the fatal dose of heroin to Rebarchik.

    His overdose death comes at a time when authorities say heroin use has become epidemic in Ozaukee County, and it appears 2014 is picking up where 2013 ended — with an increasing body count and growing docket of court cases.
