O’Fallon, Missouri man convicted of selling lethal dose of fentanyl

ST. LOUIS — An O’Fallon, Missouri man was convicted Wednesday of selling the fentanyl that killed a St. Peters woman in 2020.

Prosecutors with the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri said 27-year-old Nathan Matson pleaded guilty to one count of fentanyl distribution last August.

Matson admitted to going to St. Peters with Jason Post. The two men met the victim in the driveway of their home on July 4, 2020 and sold her 10 capsules of fentanyl for $100.

The victim later contacted Matson in distress to ask what he had sold her. Matson lied and told her it was morphine.

Prosecutors said Matson could have contacted the victim’s family or called 911 to report the matter, but he chose not to.

The victim’s mother found her dead in the house the next day.

St. Peters Police allege that Matson and Post confessed after their arrest.

Matson tested positive for opiates 25 times after being charged in the death of the St. Peters woman, according to a sentencing note.

A US District Judge sentenced Matson to 18 years and four months in federal prison.

Post, Matson’s co-defendant, pleaded guilty in February 2022 to aiding and abetting the distribution of fentanyl. He was sentenced to eight years in prison in July.
