Attention, drug users in the Oxford area, do not do the cocaine there, or at least for a little bit. It has gone bad.
People are dying in Oxford, OH, because of an apparent bad batch of cocaine that’s been circulating. It’s not being reported in the news yet, but according to a tipster, the batch was laced with fentanyl. We cannot confirm this.
The tip we received:
A bad batch of cocaine laced with fentanyl is being dispersed in Oxford, Ohio around Miami University. Has killed multiple people.
I’m a drug-free American so I didn’t know what fentanyl was, so I Googled it. Turns out it’s an opioid that’s 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, can be very harmful to your respiratory system, is very dangerous when mixed with other substances, and can cause death when taken in high doses. Sounds like some stuff you don’t want in your cocaine.
From the Journal-News:
Police in Oxford are warning residents about a possible dangerous batch of cocaine after two people in their 20s were found dead on Saturday.
The persons who died were not students at Miami University and their causes of death will not be known for several weeks, according to a release from Oxford police.
Officers first responded to the 300 block of West Vine Street where a 24-year-old woman was found deceased. While police and the coroner’s office conducted an on-scene investigation, officers were dispatched to Main and Chestnut streets where a 23-year-old man was found deceased, according to the release.
Results from toxicology tests will determine their causes of death, but cocaine use is suspected in both cases and it’s possible there is a “particularly dangerous batch out there right now,” according to the release.
The two people who died from the bad cocaine are William Benjamen Vollmer, 23, and Megan E. Dawson, 24. They were not students of Miami University.
This is a public service announcement more than anything. Stay away from the coke there. Don’t do drugs at all, but especially now..
