Courtney Heater was born May 22, 1995. On February 2, 2020 her mother, Debbie Heater, received a phone call from the Corner’s Office in Columbus County, North Carolina. The Corner informed her mother- Courtney passed away. Courtney was raised in Plainfield, IL. She loved playing Rugby, cheerleading, Irish dancing, playing hockey and was adventurous. Courtney was also, a proud dog mama to her baby Harle.

In 2018, Courtney met a boy online, started dating & moved down to Nakina, NC. The relationship started off good, but things became toxic. Courtney's boyfriend struggles with drug addiction. In September 2019, Courtney & her partner got into a disagreement which resulted physical. According to the medical report impression-Courtney was beaten. The report read: facial laceration, facial contusion, mild concussion, laceration repair & ASSAULT. This is an example of one of the many disagreements between the couple.

February 2, 2020 Courtney passed away in her home with her boyfriend present. Courtney's Cause of Death was an accidental Fentanyl and Heroin Intoxication. Courtney's autopsy diagnoses read; Fentanyl and Heroin intoxication, Pulmonary edema and congestion, Mild patchy bronchopneumonia, minor blunt force injuries to head, torso and extremities. Courtney’s autopsy had multiple pages describing marks/bruises/gashes/broken bones. Unfortunately due to the circumstances of Courtney's Cause of Death, the case has been closed. No one from the Columbus County Sheriff's Office is returning her mother's phone calls. 

Courtney was not a drug user. There are several text messages and voice memos between the couple that Courtney is pleading for the boyfriend to stop using. Her pleading with him, caused explosive outbursts of anger towards her resulting in physical and mental abuse.  According to the 911 call placed on February 2, 2020, the 911 dispatcher asked the boyfriend numerous times if there was any drugs involved. The boyfriend responded saying no, she never did drugs. Therefore, for someone who does not do drugs, for her to pass with drugs in her system it is VERY ALARMING. There was never a proper investigation completed. There was never a statement taken by the boyfriend for the incident that occurred on February 2, 2020.

Please stand with us- sign our petition to encourage the Columbus County Sheriff's Office to re-open Courtney Heater's Death Investigation. The people involved just want this to go away. We are not going anywhere until we get the truth and justice for Courtney Heater.
