Just like guns don’t kill, people do…
Residents warned of lethal drug mix
Another person died from a probable drug overdose, Wayne County health officials reported Monday, bringing the toll to 48 people who have died since May 19.
Even though the number was dropping from the multiple deaths per day, health officials aren’t ready to say the deadly overdose spurt is tapering off.
Toxicology results won’t be available for several weeks, but health officials say they believe the deaths have been caused by a dangerous combination of heroin or cocaine and the painkiller fentanyl.
The fault always lies in the bad batch of drugs and never on the addict who choses to ingest the substance.
