Suspicious death investigated in Wellsville

Updated: Monday, July 28 2014, 05:27 PM EDT
WELLSVILLE, Ohio -- Wellsville police department handled what they believe to be a drug overdose during the weekend.
Not much information is being released from police except that one woman is dead and that a drug overdose is a possible. They are awaiting a report from the coroner's office.
Steven Fields lives on Broadway Avenue, next door to where he says the woman was found.
"What I saw was everybody running out of the house next door getting rides, calling people to pick them up," Fields said.
Moments later, Fields says police and emergency responders came in discovering a woman in a chair behind her house.
"Some say she was there for 2 hours; some say she was there for 8 hours,” Fields said. “Some say it was the day before, but they all ran like a bunch of cowards instead of manning up and calling 911. They called for rides and went running."
However long she was there, it was too long. Police said she died, likely of an overdose, another possible victim to an epidemic sweeping Ohio.
“That’s all I see around here, people cross the street, everybody around here, they’re all on drugs and they are all young,” Fields said. “It’s a horrible sight."
The incident is still under investigation.
