Leland Teen’s Death Was Allegedly A Drug-Induced Homicide

Posted by wlpo on May 11, 2013

A woman from Somonauk is being blamed for the overdose death of a Leland teenage.

Nicole Benson was arrested Thursday in Texas for the Class X felony of drug induced homicide.  Investigators say she moved to Texas from Somonauk shortly after her friend 19-year old Kelsey McGuire of Leland died.

Officers say on March 11th Benson called 911 to say McGuire was at her house and was not breathing.  McGuire was rushed to Valley West Hospital where she was pronounced dead.  A medical examiner’s report showed McGuire had lethal doses of Hydrocodone and Xanax in her system when she died.

Benson is at the DeKalb County Jail on 750 thousand dollars bond.
