A 32-year-old Racine man is being held in the Vilas County jail on a drug related homicide charge.

Vilas County sheriff Joe Fath said Friday Chad A. Goll is a drug dealer who has been distributing heroin and was allegedly involved in a heroin overdose last week.

The homicide charge, however, stems from a March 22 heroin overdose in Eagle River.

Fath said the victim's name is Danny Norton, originally from Phelps but living in Eagle River at the time of his death.

"He overdosed, we believe, after Mr. Goll delivered heroin to him and he died as a result," Fath said.

He said there would be other charges against Goll involving last week's overdose death referred to Vilas County attorney Martha Milanowski pending the outcome of toxicology and crime lab reports.

In the meantime, Goll's initial appearance for the homicide charge related to the Norton death - along with three other drug related charges, including the manufacture, distribution or delivery of a controlled substance, was last Friday.

He was placed on $25,000 bond and remains in custody.
