A suspect in a La Crosse County drug death is in the county jail, awaiting an expected court hearing this week.


Bernard Moore, Jr., faces charges of reckless homicide and possession of narcotics.

Moore is accused of providing drugs that led to a fatal overdose late last year.

He was given a $10,000 signature bond on the homicide charge during a court appearance on Friday, but remains in the jail, where he is being held without bond for a probation violation.

Court records show that Moore was convicted in La Crosse County in 2018 of making or delivering heroin and was sentenced to probation.

    I am the wife of Bernard Moore and I think it’s just sick that his name is being plastered all over the news like he is some kind of evil drug dealing person with no rights. He was convicted once in 2006 in Kenosha and then not again until 2017. It doesn’t say anything about the fact that he was less than one month away from getting released from probation with zero missed visits, zero dirty drug tests and zero sanctions. He worked hard to change his life and do good. It also doesn’t say that the drug paraphernalia found in his house was nothing more than a marawuana pipe and a scale. It also doesn’t state that they left a man named John inside the house for nearly 30 minutes alone and unsupervised and was later searched and found with heroin covered tinfoil and a straw used for smoking it inside his hooded sweatshirt pocket and the police just gave it back to him and let him go. Also Bernard Moore was not even in town on the day of the overdose. He was gone until the next day and there are witnesses to verify this. I feel terrible for the family that lost the victim but no one is talking about his family and how this has destroyed us, caused us to be homeless because no landlord will rent to us now. We can’t go in public without being harassed. I thought the law stated that we are all innocent under God until proven guilty in the court of law. Bernard Moore is one of the most caring men I have ever met. He is a great father and a loving husband who worked 12 hour days 6 days a week to support our family. The way he is being treated right now is heart breaking and disgusting. Not to mention she was also found with methamphetamine in her system which Bernard has zero history of. He deserves a fair chance to tell his side of the story. Our lives should not be destroyed before a conviction has even happened.
