Three apparent overdose deaths being investigated; Recovery Alliance warns: “BAD BATCH ALERT!”

Monroe County Coroner Joani Shields confirmed with the Bloomingtonian three area residents died of apparent overdoses Thursday.

“I can confirm we currently have 3 death investigations we are conducting from today, Thursday, and they appear to be possible overdose-related. All 3 are being sent for an autopsy so no confirmed cause of death yet,” said Shields.

The Indiana Recovery Alliance posted the following statement Thursday evening, “

“BAD BATCH ALERT! There’s a bad batch out right now. We do not have more information, but we’ve just heard about 3 deaths in one afternoon. Please be safe. Please carry Naloxone.
