A woman thought she was buying pain pills. A day later, she was dead.


The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office shed light on what happened in a recent release.

On Nov. 24, 2022, Bristol Township Police were dispatched at 3:55 a.m. on a report of a woman who was not breathing.

Upon arrival, Bristol Township officers found Olivia Seaberg dead on the floor of her home. Police spotted a blue pill next to where Seaberg was located, along with an empty prescription pill bottle, marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia and and Seaberg’s cellphone, according to the release.

The release reported that a witness told police he last saw Seaberg around 11 p.m. Nov. 23, 2022, as she entered her apartment after finishing her shift as a waitress at a nearby bar and grill.

Records on her cell phone detailed a drug transaction.

The Bristol Township Police Department’s officers viewed surveillance footage that captured the drug transaction. A forensic search of Seaberg’s cellphone lead to the discovery of a conversation she had with someone on Facebook Messenger.

The messages showed that Seaberg purchased “what she believed to be oxycodone prescription tablets and marijuana” on two dates prior to her death. In fact, the release that documents the investigation reports that Seaberg questioned if the pills she purchased were counterfeit and contained Fentanyl. 

The blue pill recovered from Seaberg’s residence was tested and a lab report confirmed it contained Fentanyl, along with other substances. A report from the Bucks County Coroner’s Office confirmed that Seaberg’s death was caused by Fentanyl Toxicity. 

Police were able to identify Shakur Ali Brisbon, 24, as the person Seaberg was conversing with on Facebook Messenger. According to Bucks County’s Police Complaint, Brisbon was charged with drug delivery resulting in death, conspiracy to commit drug delivery resulting in Death, criminal use of a communication facility, involuntary manslaughter and conspiracy to commit involuntary manslaughter and two counts each of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and conspiracy to commit possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

He was arraigned in February by Magisterial District Judge Terrence Hughes and is now in Bucks County Correctional Facility on $1 million bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 7.
