A Camden County woman who was accused of murder in an August overdose death is now in the Camden County Jail.

Clarissa Escoffier, 20, of Climax Springs, was charged in November with second-degree murder. She is being held without bond after getting booked into the jail on Monday morning. Escoffier appeared in court on Monday and victim impact statements were heard, according to Casenet. A preliminary hearing is set for 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26.

According to the probable cause statement, a victim – who was not named – died on Aug. 26 of a fentanyl overdose. The statement cites an autopsy report.

Escoffier was allegedly at the scene with pills and was “acting suspiciously,” the statement says.

A search of Escoffier’s phone allegedly showed that she thought she was selling Percocet pills she got from a “street-level dealer,” the probable cause statement says. Friends and family of two other people allegedly said they both had overdoses from pills bought from Escoffier, the statement says.

Escoffier were allegedly identified as fentanyl by a Missouri State Highway Patrol crime lab.

One person interviewed allegedly said they received “Percocet” from Escoffier for free for “pain relief” and then woke up in a hospital, the statement says. Another person allegedly denied taking pills or having associated medical issues, the statement says.
