Police investigate whether overdoses caused 2 deaths



The Cincinnati Enquirer

ERLANGER - Police are investigating whether two residents found dead in a mobile home Thursday overdosed on methadone, commonly used to treat heroin addicts.

Dan Houp, 38, and Annette Bradford, 37, were found dead inside Mr. Houp's home at 3358 Robert E. Lee Drive. Police were called to the home at 8 a.m. after a woman called 911 and said she couldn't wake the two up.

Autopsies being performed and toxicology reports could take two months to return from the state lab, police said.
