Stevens Point police say they are seeking information on a suspected drug overdose death that occurred on Feb. 1.
A 38-year-old woman was found dead Wed. afternoon in a residence somewhere on Second St., though police on Friday weren’t yet willing to disclose the block number.
“She was at a residence on Second St., but she did not currently live in the city,” Assistant Police Chief Tom Zenner said, adding police couldn’t yet “definitively” confirm the woman’s cause of death, but evidence so far is pointing to a potential drug overdose.
“We are conducting an investigation based on the potential,” he said.
Zenner declined to say what type of drug the woman might have taken.
“I’d love to be able to say these are not common,” he added. “We’re looking for tips; we are actively following every lead.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective John Lawrynk at (715) 498-0454.
