Fentanyl Overdose Incident
The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office has been advised by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office that the overdose related death of El Dorado Hills Resident George Berry, 18 years old, is suspected of being related to the rash of recent overdoses from counterfeit hydrocodone pills laced with Fentanyl.
As such, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is assisting the Drug Enforcement Administration with a region-wide investigation.
It should be noted that an official cause of death has yet to be determined as it is still under investigation by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
Furthermore, it is strongly recommended that anyone who has purchased pills illegally that look like the picture below do not use them as they may kill you.
If you have a legal prescription from your Doctor for these pills (hydrocodone), they are safe and should only be used as prescribed.
