Police ID Suspected Heroin Overdose Victim
WOOD RIVER, Ill. (AP) — Authorities in Wood River Illinois say they’ve identified the body of a suspected heroin overdose victim as that of a 28-year-old man.
The (Alton) Telegraph reports that Kenneth Harris Jr.’s body was found Tuesday in a car parked in a bay of a car wash in Wood River.
Deputy Police Chief Mickey Sabolo says the investigation points to a heroin overdose as the cause of the man’s death, and no foul play is suspected. Authorities say drug paraphernalia was found next to the victim, who Sabolo says appeared to have died alone.
An autopsy was conducted Tuesday, but results weren’t released. Authorities are awaiting results of toxicology tests.
