DALLAS --  Dallas police arrested 20-year-old Skyler Brandt in the drug related death of Matthew Allen.

Allen, 19, died on August 13 after partying at a Dallas rave club called The Afterlife.

An autopsy revealed he died from a drug overdose. Police said Brandt sold Allen the drugs that caused his death. 

DPD narcotics unit also conducted an investigation into at least five other people for allegedly selling drugs at the club and arrested some of those suspects today.

DPD’s vice unit also determined Allen purchased the drugs at the club and took the fatal drugs there. They said the management knew drugs were being sold at the club, so they revoked the club's license to shut it down.
