LACONIA — A 21-year-old Union Avenue man died over the weekend from what police said was likely a heroin overdose.
Police Capt. Matt Canfield said the death was reported to police Saturday at 10:30 a.m. by one of the man's co-workers who came to pick him up for work.
Canfield said police recovered some paraphernalia and some drugs they believe to be heroin.
He said police are actively investigating the death, but are not releasing the name of the young man until all of his family can be notified.
Canfield said there were three other non-fatal overdoses in the city over the weekend.
A 39-year-old man was revived by the Laconia Fire Department with NARCAN — a opiate antidote — after allegedly overdosing of drugs on 96 Fair St. on Friday night.
A 30-year-old woman at 735 North Main St. overdosed Saturday at 8:09 p.m. She was revived by the Laconia Fire Department with NARCAN after overdosing on an opiate.
A 27-year-old man overdosed on an unspecified drug at 1156 North Main St. Saturday around 9:59 p.m., and was revived by Laconia Fire Department personnel.
Canfield said the three overdose survivors were all transported to Lakes Region General Hospital.
