MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) -- Court documents filed in Dunn County say a man has admitted giving oxycodone to a University of Wisconsin-Stout student found dead in her apartment last month.
A search warrant says the 27-year-old Owen man told police he provided the drug to 23-year-old Jesse Jensen the night before he found her without a pulse the morning of Jan. 23. The man has not been charged in connection with Jensen's death.
The warrant says the man told investigators he warned Jensen not to ingest the entire oxycodone tablet because it was too much for her. The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram says police continue to investigate Jensen's death. Toxicology tests are not yet complete and the cause of her death has not been released.
