Leandro De Niro, 19, the grandson of the famous actor Robert De Niro, was recently found deceased.

The deceased teenager was discovered at the Cipriani Wall Street building in Manhattan last Sunday. The building houses luxury hotels, offices, and an exclusive social club. According to Breitbart, Robert De Niro's daughter revealed how her son died.

Initial reports indicated that a "white powder" was discovered on a plate near the teen's body.

However, Drena De Niro, the adopted daughter of the movie star and mother of the deceased, claimed on Tuesday that her son died because someone knowingly sold him "fentanyl-laced" pills.

"My son is gone"

The grieving mother took to social media to announce her son's cause of death, slamming the dealer who she claims knowingly sold the teen laced pills.

"Someone sold him fentanyl-laced pills that they knew were laced yet still sold them to him," she wrote.

She added a warning to those who buy and sell the laced pills, writing, "So for all these people still f***ing around selling and buying this s**t, my son is gone forever."

In a separate Instagram post, she paid tribute to her late son.

"My beautiful sweet angel. I have loved you beyond words or description from the moment I felt you in my belly. You have been my joy my heart and all that was ever pure and real in my life. I wish I was with you right now. I wish I was with you. I don’t know how to live without you but I’ll try to go on and spread the love and light that you so made me feel in getting to be your mama."

Condolences pour in

Not surprisingly, condolences poured in for the legendary actor and grieving mother, with numerous celebrities reaching out to offer their support.

Others blamed President Joe Biden's lax border policies for allowing so much fentanyl to cross into the United States from Mexico.

Clearly, more action needs to be taken to combat the perpetual flow of the highly dangerous drug from pouring in across the border. Sadly, America might have to wait for a Republican president to have any hope of that happening.
