(KXAN) — The family of Layton Ivins is speaking out after losing the teen to an alleged case of fentanyl poisoning last month.
Cody Ivins, Layton’s father, said the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating his son’s death. While no cause of death has yet been shared, he said contaminated or counterfeit substances containing fentanyl are what lead to the loss of the teen. …
“I’ve known him since I was a kid. It’s always just been me, Layton, and his little brother. Almost like a tripod together,” Ivins said.
He said what he can share about his son’s passing is limited, but said it was unintentional and the first time his son tried a substance with fentanyl.
