225+ heroin overdoses in 4 counties in 4 states in 1 week

An overdose crisis in the past week has left police and emergency responders here drained and without clues.


It has also underscored that this region does not have resources to treat all of people addicted to opioids, including heroin.


Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the source of heroin sold here that caused scores of overdoses, including at least three deaths. More than 200 people in four states have been victims of what law enforcement officials are calling a supercharged form of the sedative, and one additional person died in Indiana.
