Opioids In Court

FILE - In this June 6, 2017, file photo, a reporter holds up an example of the amount of fentanyl that can be deadly after a news conference about deaths from fentanyl exposure, at DEA Headquarters in Arlington, Va. 

Since Wednesday, New Castle County Police have been dispatched to five drug overdoses and six death investigations believed to be drug-related throughout the county. 

Police said, though all cases are actively being investigated and the cause of death are pending further conclusions from the Division of Forensic Science, the incidents that began occurring on October 10, 2018, do not appear to be related at this time.
