Woman charged in connection with a fatal overdose in 2022 in Muncie



Muncie, Indiana – In connection with a fatal drug overdose from the previous year, a Muncie woman is accused.

The 28-year-old Brittany Hahn is accused of selling methamphetamine, selling a narcotic drug, and selling a controlled substance that caused death. They are all felonies.

Hahn is charged with giving drugs to a 34-year-old Muncie mother who was found dead on August 18, 2022, according to court filings.

Witnesses allegedly informed police that Hahn and another individual “shot” the girl just before she passed away.

Hahn communicated with the woman over Messenger while using a Facebook account that the police had connected to her. According to court records, the communication included references to substances including heroin and methamphetamine. The woman inquired if she could exchange a luxury handbag for narcotics with Hahn.

On August 17, at around 8 p.m., the chat began. According to court records, the two exchanged messages for a while until Hahn sent one saying that she was on her way to the woman’s house.

A witness claimed to have seen Hahn at the house that evening. The witness, who was staying with the victim, texted her that “some girl is here waiting for you” at 10:01 p.m.

The woman replied, “Tell her I’m on my way… that’s my friend Britt.”

Police detained Hahn on April 1—more than seven months after the fatal overdose, according to jail records.

The most serious accusation against Hahn is dealing in a controlled substance that caused death, which is a Level 1 felony punishable by up to 40 years in jail. The maximum term for her other two offenses, Level 5 felonies, is 6 years.
