Montgomery County officials confirm first carfentanil overdose deaths

NORRISTOWN >> Public health officials in Montgomery County have confirmed the county’s first overdose deaths linked to a deadly synthetic drug powerful enough to tranquilize elephants.

The drug known as carfentanil was found in the systems of a 43-year-old man found dead in a Lower Merion home on June 10 and in a 65-year-old Philadelphia man who was transported to Lankenau Hospital in Lower Merion for treatment of a suspected overdose on June 13 and died later that day, according to the county’s Department of Public Safety.
