Lane was also beaten & robbed! it was not just from the heroin! It was the first time he had ever tried the drug & it ended tragically for both of us & his other relatives! Maybe the police will do their job & get the people who added to his death!!!!

So lets get this straight, a professor who is married with children is doing heroin? Again, hard to mustard sympathy for an act so stupid. Do have pity for the children who will not have a dad not but my God, what is wrong with people. This is not a one a day vitamin. DRUGS kill people!

The police cannot be everywhere at one time they are not miracle workers. People that do drugs should know better and people that know people that sell drugs should notify the police u can do it were u will never be identified. When you do drugs and fool with drug dealers
No good ever comes from such behavior. It is a shame a waste of life because of drugs.

Deni sawyer use to be one hot babe. Is she a druggie now days. She use to drink and smoke a little weed back in day damn had one hot body. Haven't seen her or heard her name in 20 years or more. What a shame if she is a druggie. Hope not. If so maybe this unfortunate incident will turn her life around. New her from the Old Sutton days and Torch Club days.

Oh Susan, I see you still copy and paste everything, lol
You are very wrong, it is true. Just because you have kids and a decent job does not mean you do not do drugs. Look at all the celebrities for crying out loud. Does not matter your race, religion or background.
Sadly it happens all the time.

unfortunately this is what happens when they tighten the reigns on pain pills, it has happened in the past with the first big opiate resurgence in the nineties and early 2000's. pain pill use increases so the gvmt cuts the number of pills that can be made and distributed, which does cut prescription opiate use but also leaves those addicted vulnerable to alternatives, heroin in this case. now we are again seeing a big push to restrict opiate availability and prescription writing so again we see heroin enter the local picture. only this time around it's gonna be less rare as a struggling economy will cause more people to take risks to support themselves or their families.

this is terrible but it happens anywhere, the cops can only stop what they know is there. so as long as someone out there realizes he/she can make lots of money off the prescription shortage by investing in some cheap heroin from rivertown it's gonna be an ever present problem.

there isn't really a good way to fix the problem either you have people addicted to factory made known dosages of opiates or you have widespread heroin use, human nature will never change that is for sure

Did he have a history of drug use or heroin use?? Did his wife or family have any idea he was using?
