STAMFORD, Conn. — The growing opioid crisis took its toll in the past week in Stamford, with police investigating the fatal overdoses of three men in apparently unrelated incidents, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Stamford police also warned drug users to be careful buying drugs in the streets after the apparent fatal overdoses, the Advocate said.

Capt. Richard Conklin told the Advocate that the causes of the deaths must be determined, but evidence found at the scene indicate illegal drug use.

The bags of heroin did not appear to come from the same batch, the Advocate said, and it was unknown whether fentanyl or other substance was mixed in the heroin.

The three deaths, according to the Advocate, were:

  • A 31-year-old man on Spring Street on Sunday night;
  • A 44-year-old man on Wooridge Drive on Wednesday; and
  • A 54-year-old man on Home Court home on Thursday.

The Stamford Police Department now has four officers specifically trained to investigate overdose deaths, the Advocate said.
