Feds in new indictment say addicts died after receiving illegal drugs shipped via FedEx

SAN FRANCISCO - Federal prosecutors say several addicts died soon after receiving shipments of illegal prescription drugs sent via FedEx.

The deaths were included in a new indictment filed late Thursday against FedEx that adds money laundering to a list of charges the company is facing over allegations it knowingly shipped illegal prescription drugs from two online pharmacies.

The Memphis, Tennessee-based shipping giant is not charged with any of the deaths.

The three money laundering charges allege the online pharmacies paid their FedEx bills with money obtained illegally.

FedEx Corp. already was facing 15 conspiracy and drug charges that were filed last month. It denies the charges and any wrongdoing and vows to fight the case in court.
