Girl Tells School Parents Won’t Wake Up; Fatal OD Suspected

MCKEESPORT, Pa. (AP) — Two adults have been found dead of suspected drug overdoses after their 7-year-old daughter told school officials in Pennsylvania she couldn’t wake them up.

The Allegheny County medical examiner says the bodies of 26-year-old Christopher Dilly and 25-year-old Jessica Lally were found Monday evening in their McKeesport apartment.

Authorities say a 9-month-old girl, 3-year-old boy and 5-year-old boy who were inside the home were taken to a hospital to be evaluated.

Lt. Andrew Schurman says it appears the adults might have been dead for a day or two. He says they are believed to have died from a drug overdose and foul play isn’t suspected.

Police say another fatal overdose happened on the same street earlier that day.

    At least the children will now have a chance of growing up in a drug free home.

    1. Why because the parents are gone? Chances are they’ll go to another member of the family who could be addicts too. Or they go to foster care and wind up abused either physically or sexually.
