AURORA, IN (FOX19) -

An Aurora man has been charged with reckless homicide after his friend died of an overdose in a gas station parking lot.

The Aurora Police Department responded to the Aurora Road Dog Gas Station on April 27, 2011 for a report of a possible overdose.

When Officers arrived, CPR was being performed on Tyler F. Butler, age 24, of North Vernon, Indiana. Attempts to resuscitate Butler were unsuccessful and he was later pronounced dead.

Butler and two friends were passing through Aurora after allegedly buying heroin in Cincinnati, Ohio when the driver of the vehicle, Adam C. Kemmerer pulled into the gas station after it was noticed that Butler wasn't breathing.

The investigation determined that Kemmerer allegedly got the heroin from an apartment in Cincinnati and injected himself with the drug. Then Kemmerer allegedly loaded a syringe of the drug and either gave it to Butler or injected Butler with it.

The results of the autopsy indicated that the cause of Butler's death was a result of a mixed drug overdose. Butler tested positive for Alprazolam, Opiates, Morphine, 6-Monoacetylmorphine, Codeine, and Ethanol Alcohol. 6-Monoacetylmorphoine is a heroin metabolite detected only after heroin exposure.

Kemmerer has been charged with Reckless Homicide, Possession of Cocaine, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, and Possession of Paraphernalia. Charges were filed by the Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutors Office.

The warrant for his arrest was issued Monday morning and he is now in the custody of the Dearborn County Sheriff's Department.
