DA sealOREGON CITY, Or. — A 30-year-old man was indicted on charges Tuesday by a Clackamas County grand jury after he allegedly sold a man Fentanyl that later led to his death.

Colby Jungwirth, who was last living in St. Paul, was charged with second-degree manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide in connection to the 2022 death of Milwaukie resident Christian Robertson, 26.

In June 2022, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a death investigation where Robertson had been found deceased by family members. In his room, deputies found evidence that indicated he overdosed on drugs. Clackamas County Interagency Task Force (CCITF) investigators were able to connect a recent drug purchase made by the victim to Jungwirth, who later took the Fentanyl in his Clackamas County home, the indictment alleged.

Jungwirth was arrested May 20 in Woodburn and transported the following morning to the Clackamas County Jail. He is being held on $250,000 bail.

CCITF, led by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, works to disrupt and dismantle drug trafficking organizations operating in Clackamas County, and reduce illegal drugs and related crimes throughout the community. The task force is comprised of members of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, Canby Police Department, Oregon State Police, HSI, and FBI. CCITF is supported by the Oregon-Idaho High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) program.
