That white powder allegedly carried into the Genesee County Jail by convicted killer Scott Doll was aspirin.
Genesee County Sheriff Chief Deputy Jerome Brewster said this morning that lab tests confirmed the substance placed inside a green balloon “taped to Doll’s buttocks” was regular aspirin.
Brewster said the finding does not change the charge against Doll of Promoting Prison Contraband because any drug, even aspirin, is considered contraband.
Had the powder turned out to be a controlled substance, the charge against Doll would have been elevated.
Doll had just been convicted of Second Degree Murder in the slaying of Joseph Benequist and was being processed into the county jail when the substance was discovered.
