Tragic Death of Robert De Niro’s Grandson Linked to Lethal Fake Pills

July 15, 2023








Law enforcement authorities have revealed that the grandson of renowned actor Robert De Niro, 19-year-old Leandro De Niro, tragically ingested fake oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl. Shockingly, it is alleged that the person who sold him the pills was aware of the potential danger but proceeded with the sale regardless.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, investigators discovered multiple pills at the scene of Leandro De Niro’s death. Upon examining the teen’s phone, they found text exchanges between him and a 20-year-old woman named Sophia Marks, discussing the purchase of counterfeit oxycodone and Xanax just days before his passing.









Disturbingly, during one of the exchanges, Marks asked, “do you really need them? I don’t wanna kill you.” She went on to say, “I just don’t like serving u them cuz they not script.” Eventually, a deal was struck for three fake oxycodone pills and two Xanax tablets, with Marks allegedly cautioning De Niro, “don’t go overboard with these.”

The drugs were delivered to De Niro by car on the evening of July 1. At 1:50 AM on July 2, Marks texted the teen, asking if he was alright. Unfortunately, De Niro did not respond.

When investigators found De Niro’s body, they discovered one bag of cocaine, a straw with residue, two blue pills marked with “M” and “30” (indicating oxycodone), and seven rectangular tablets believed to be Xanax.








In a shocking turn of events, police state that Marks continued selling drugs even after De Niro’s death. On July 9, she allegedly sold 25 pills to an undercover agent for $500. During the transaction, Marks reportedly told the undercover agent, “please be careful with these. don’t do more than one at a time. my friend just died.” Analysis later revealed that both the pills found at the scene and those sold to the undercover agent contained traces of fentanyl.

Marks is facing charges of distributing and possessing fentanyl and alprazolam with intent to distribute, carrying a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. Additionally, she is charged with two counts of distributing and possessing fentanyl, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. The tragic incident highlights the dangers posed by counterfeit drugs and the urgent need to address the illicit drug trade.
