Concerns raised amid 3 overdose deaths in Washington state

SEATTLE (AP) — Health officials in Washington state have confirmed three people died from separate fentanyl-related overdoses on the same day. KOMO-TV reports that 26-year-old Kraz Lee Adrian was one of three people who was found dead Thursday. His family says Kraz thought was he taking a Percocet pill he bought on the street for his chronic knee and back pain, but was found dead in his room within two hours. Authorities say fentanyl was found in counterfeit Percocet and oxycodone pills in all three deaths. Officials say there are increasing reports of fentanyl-involved overdose deaths from counterfeit pills. Health officials have encouraged residents not to take pills there were not prescribed to them.
