Derek Boogaard's Brother May Be Charged in Death of Former Ranger

It has been two months since the passing of Rangers’ forward Derek Boogaard from an accidental overdose of oxycodone and alcohol. His brother, Aaron, was involved and could face charges. From HockeyWriters.com:

Aaron Boogaard, Derek’s 24-year old brother, was charged with unlawful sale of a controlled substance, an accusation that centers on him allegedly giving his brother the Oxycodone pill that ultimately led to his death. He was also charged with interfering with the scene of a death, a complaint arising from allegations that he tried to mislead or conceal evidence in the incident.

From the New York Times:

Aaron and Derek Boogaard, who was 28 when he died, lived together here during hockey’s off-season. Their father, Len Boogaard, said Thursday that Aaron occasionally hid his brother’s stashes of OxyContin, revealing their whereabouts only when pushed by Derek.
