Overdose suspected in death of two Carroll students
From staff reports
At 8:50 a.m. Saturday, the Grapevine Police and Fire departments responded to 710 Heather Wood Drive in reference to a possible overdose.
Two unresponsive males were located in a bedroom of the home.
Grapevine paramedics pronounced both males dead at the scene. The males were identified as Kyle McNutt, 17, and Chase Nunez, 18. Both are Grapevine residents and are students at Carroll Senior High School.
Grapevine detectives determined that illegal narcotics were used by both individuals and a third individual who lives at the home. He was identified as 22-year-old Cullen William Marino. Detectives believe that McNutt, Nunez and Marino ingested illegal narcotics throughout the previous night. Marino was arrested at the scene for an unrelated warrant and transported to the Grapevine Police Department jail.
Through further investigation, detectives learned at some point during the night that Marino discovered McNutt and Nunez unresponsive, where if medical attention would have been summoned, both may have survived. Because of that, Marino was additionally charged with two counts of criminally negligent homicide.
Detectives are continuing the investigation, along with the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office to determine the exact cause of death of the two individuals.
