2 Die From Apparent Heroin Overdoses In Fort Collins
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – Fort Collins police are investigating two separate deaths they think were caused by a heroin overdose.
Rita Davis with Fort Collins police said the first case occurred Tuesday morning in the 2900 block of Tumbleweed Lane.
“A 25-year-old man contacted 911 after waking up to find two roommates unconscious. Emergency Medical Technicians transported a 25-year-old male to the hospital for treatment of a potential drug overdose. A 29 year-old man died at the scene,” Davis said in a statement.
Early Wednesday morning police responded to a similar report a 24-year-old man in the 100 block of East Trilby Road who had died.
“A 44-year-old man reported finding his roommate unresponsive around 3 a.m. and called 911. Paramedics were unable to revive the victim,” Davis said.
Police aren’t sure if the deaths are connected.
“The Larimer County Coroner has documented four heroin deaths in Larimer County so far this year and suspects heroin in three other cases,” Davis said.
The victims’ names and cause of death won’t be released until next-of-kin are notified and autopsies are completed.
