Omaha Mother Fights for Fentanyl Awareness After Son’s Death
Last Updated: Wednesday January 10, 2024
(WOWT) An Omaha mother is hoping to prevent fentanyl poisoning deaths by sharing her own story of loss.
Kristi Wishnack’s world unraveled in December of 2019. The oldest of her six children, 28-year-old Zackery Eugene Biber, went to visit his grandmother in Springfield, Missouri.
“He’d battled addiction off and on probably since his late teen years. He’d actually had been doing really well, he’d been sober for a little over a year, so it came quiet as a surprise to us,” said Wishnack.
Wishnack said Zack took drugs, not knowing they were laced with fentanyl, and overdosed.
