MURDER USA Maurice Lamont Gordon entered a guilty plea to killing a teen with fentanyl sold from his Woodbridge lair

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A Woodbridge man pled guilty in Federal court in Alexandria on June 20, 2024, to the distribution of fentanyl, resulting in death.

According to court documents, on April 23, 2022, Maurice Lamont Gordon, 37, sold counterfeit pressed pills containing fentanyl that resulted in the overdose death of a 15-year-old victim. The victim and another individual walked to Gordon’s apartment to purchase “percs,” a street name for Percocet or counterfeit pills containing fentanyl and made to resemble Percocet and other legitimate oxycodone pills. The victim provided money to the other individual to make the purchase and was provided with his share of the “percs” sold by Gordon. After the purchase, the victim returned home and never left.

The following day, the victim was found nonresponsive in his home and was pronounced dead by Prince William County Emergency Medical Services. Officers with the Prince William County Police Department found narcotics paraphernalia near the victim’s body, including burnt aluminum foil with fentanyl residue. The Virginia Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled that the victim died of Accidental Fentanyl Intoxication after an autopsy found fentanyl and des propionyl fentanyl, a metabolite of fentanyl, in the victim’s blood with no other drugs or alcohol present.

On Oct. 12, 2022, law enforcement executed a search warrant on Gordon’s residence. During the search, law enforcement seized marijuana, cocaine, a large quantity of counterfeit pressed pills containing fentanyl, a Polymer 80 semi-automatic “ghost gun” bearing no serial number, and ammunition. The seized pills totaled over 1,100 and weighed approximately 130 grams.


Gordon is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 3, 2024, and faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 20 years and up to life in prison. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Federal prosecutors announced that a Woodbridge man was sentenced on April 14, 2023, to 52 months in prison for distributing a Schedule II controlled substance to a person under the age of twenty-one.

According to court documents, in April of 2022, Latae’veion Woods, 21, sold pills purporting to be Percocet to a 14-year-old, who died of a fentanyl overdose approximately five days after the distribution. Following the overdose death, officers found a clear plastic baggie containing four blue pills with markings consistent with 30 milligram Percocet pills in the juvenile’s pants. Analysis later showed that the pills actually contained fentanyl. Police also discovered text messages on the 14-year-old’s phone, which revealed that Woods distributed pills to the juvenile on multiple occasions during March and April 2022. The messages further established that Woods instructed the juvenile on how to redistribute the pills and directed him to resell the pills for a specific amount of money. No other messages were located on the juvenile’s phone to suggest he had any other supply source for Percocet.

Messages also demonstrated that Woods offered to sell the juvenile a firearm, specifically, a Glock 19 or Glock 48 semiautomatic handgun. During a search warrant of Woods’ residence, law enforcement seized a Glock 48 handgun and a Glock-style semi-automatic “ghost” gun, both of which Woods admitted belonged to him.

According to court documents, on Sept. 6, 2023, while conducting vehicle checks at the Pentagon City Fashion Centre garage, an Arlington County Police officer observed a vehicle speeding through the garage before parking in a handicapped spot without a handicap sticker. The vehicle was registered to Willie Gene Thorne, 29, who had at least one outstanding arrest warrant from Pennsylvania.

The officer inspected the vehicle and noticed a patch of aluminum foil with burn marks, a large bag of a white, powdery substance, two straws, and a plastic bag containing several small baggies. The officer called for additional officers to assist.

When Thorne returned to his vehicle, he initially resisted arrest before complying when threatened with a taser. In his waistband, Thorne had a loaded, stolen 9mm handgun. A search of the vehicle revealed, among other items, a bag containing 91 grams of fentanyl, a digital scale, a razor blade, and approximately 84 baggies. Thorne also had a straw with residue and approximately 100 baggies in his pants pocket.

Thorne is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 6 and faces a mandatory minimum of five years and up to life in prison. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties.
