HEROIN DEATHS-OHIO
Police in northeast Ohio suspect a bad batch of heroin in 5 overdose deaths in last 2 weeks

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 5:20 PM EDT
AKRON, Ohio


Akron police in northeast Ohio say at least five heroin overdose deaths in the past two weeks may have been caused by a bad batch of drugs.

A statement from the department says a 31-year-old Akron man and a 58-year-old man from Largo, Florida, were found dead on Tuesday. The statement says three other heroin-related deaths have been reported in Akron in the last two weeks. Several more heroin users have been treated at local hospitals.

The statement said police hadn't determined whether the deaths were linked to something poisonous in the heroin or its purity level. They are warning heroin users to avoid using any drugs purchased in the past two weeks.

No one was available for comment in the Akron police narcotics unit Wednesday.
