Cayuga County coroner warns drug overdose deaths on the rise

Something deadly is going around Cayuga County, causing more drug overdoses and deaths than the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office and county coroner have seen in a while.

Coroner Adam Duckett said he saw four overdose deaths in the past seven to 10 days, all unrelated and spread across the county from Aurora, to Cato, to Auburn. It concerned him so much, he said, that he posted on his former campaign Facebook page to warn people.

“I am writing this post today because my investigators and myself have seen a rise in overdoses in our County this week and it has made me very uneasy,” he wrote on Oct. 9. “I want to reach as many people as possible to warn them to BE CAREFUL. Something very lethal is being passed around right now and until we know what it is, PLEASE take this time to get HELP.”
