RCMP in Maidstone say two people are dead because of what could be fatal drug overdoses.
A release says members were called to a home in the town around 8:40 Friday morning. When they arrived, one man was dead with a second one dying shortly after despite the efforts of local emergency responders.
RCMP say “While this sudden death investigation is in the preliminary stages, investigators believe the deaths may be the result of a drug overdose,”
Earlier this week in Saskatoon, three people died as a result of what police say was ingesting cocaine laced with fentanyl with others having to be hospitalized.
RCMP add two people in the Kamsack region also had contact with cocaine laced with fentanyl, but in that case, neither needed medical treatment.
