Suspected overdose claims life of Bartholomew County woman

A suspected heroin overdose claimed the life of a Bartholomew County woman early Tuesday morning.

Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department Spokesperson Judy Jackson says that Deputy Adam DeBoth was dispatched to the 14000 block of South Jonesville Road at 2:13 a.m. after receiving a call about a possible seizure. Jackson says that When the deputy arrived, the woman’s boyfriend told him that it was a possible heroin overdose. Deputies administered Narcan and began CPR before medical responders arrived and took the woman to Columbus Regional Hospital. She was pronounced dead by Emergency Room staff shortly after arrival.

Jackson says that deputies found a metal spoon with white residue, along with an empty syringe at the home. She adds that several people were in the house at the time of the incident, but were sleeping at the time.
