On Monday, April 5, 2020 at approximately 7:30 AM, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the Livingston Oaks Apartments in East Jefferson County in response to a person who was unresponsive. The victim was a 42 year old female who was not breathing. It appears that the female had been using crack cocaine and had overdosed.
Around 5:15 PM the same day, a person had gone to another apartment located in the same complex, to check on a family member whom they had been unable to reach. When they arrived, they found two females who were unresponsive and called 911. The victims were 56 and 58 years old. It appeared that illegal drugs may have been used recently by the two.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths and is attempting to determine if the victims used the same type narcotics. The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office will determine the exact cause and manner of death in these cases.
If you have in your possession, or know of anyone who has crack cocaine in their possession, it is imperative that you understand, not only is it illegal and harmful, it is deadly.
