WAYNE COUNTY ON PACE IN 2018 TO EXCEED 2017'S OVERDOSE DEATH TOTAL

(Wayne County, IN)--There’s still no final total of overdose deaths for 2017 in Wayne County, but Coroner Ron Stevens said Thursday that Wayne County is on pace this year to surpass last year’s total.  The number of confirmed fatal overdoses last year is in the 80’s with several more cases pending.  This year, Stevens said the county is currently on pace to reach nearly a hundred overdose fatalities.  The delay in getting final numbers for 2017 is due to a large backlog of cases at testing laboratories.
