Fentanyl Overdoses in Catoosa and Walker Counties

Two incidents in north Georgia over the last 24 hours

LAFAYETTE, Georgia (WDEF) – Investigators are dealing with two potentially deadly overdose incidents in northwest Georgia.

The worst happened Monday morning in a rural location in Kensington, Georgia.

The Walker County Sheriff says officers found three people dead from what appeared to be fentanyl overdoses.

He tells us the three people appeared to have died at least a couple of hours before they arrived.

This follows another triple overdose case last night in nearby Catoosa County.

Fire, medics and Fort Oglethorpe Police arrived at a home before 7 p.m. Sunday night.

Police officers administered Narcan before the medics arrived.

Then EMTs administered Narcan to two of the victims.

All three of them were revived.

However, Catoosa County officials say two of the fire personnel had to be treated for fentanyl exposure and taken to the hospital.

Deputies did arrest a female witness at the home who had some outstanding warrants.

We asked Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson if the cases are related.

He doesn’t have enough information to say they are at this point.
