The Federal Bureau of Investigation indicted 76 people in Georgia in what officials are describing as one of the largest-ever indictments in the state

"Operation Ghost Busted' is one of the state's largest-ever drug trafficking indictments.

The investigation has linked 3 overdose deaths to this drug trafficking ring.

Channel 2′s Candance McCowan got the chance to speak with the family of one of the victims who is certain the breaking up of this massive operation will save other families from agony.

It's been almost 17 months since Rebecca Cain passed away and her sisters miss her everyday.

Jody Nordwall and Holly Morales explain their sister was a mother on her way to becoming a nurse, but fell into addiction and overdosed in 2021.

"It's just unfair, it's very unfair," Holly Morales.

"She showed me the true meaning of a sister, of a best friend as someone who was always there by my side no matter what," Jody Nordwall.

John Dylan Screen is now facing federal charges of distribution of a controlled substance resulting in a death in connection with Cain's overdose death.

Screen is accused of distributing Fentanyl, but what Cain's sisters didn't know until the indictment was unsealed days ago is that he is also linked to a second overdose death.

"There's another family grieving because of him two months after she died another one, wheres the remorse," Nordwall told Channel 2 Action News.

Screen is one of 76 arrest in 'Operation Ghost Busted'.

A drug trafficking ring that federal prosecutors say was run in and out of state prisons facilities and included white supremacist street gang members.

For Cain's family the charges help dull some of their pain. With this ring now broken up they hope this will save lives and spare other families their pain.

The sisters are now focused on the son she left behind.
