Overdose blamed in man's death

October 23, 2001

A 46-year-old man died early this morning after what El Centro police think is an illegal narcotic overdose.

El Centro police Lt. Tim Blankenship said the man was found unresponsive in the bathroom of his relatives' home on the 400 block of East Orange Avenue around 5 this morning.

According to Blankenship, a hypodermic syringe was found next to the man's body, who was from out of town but visiting relatives.

Police did not release the name of the man this morning pending notification of his family, Blenkenship said.

The man apparently arrived at the Orange Avenue home early this morning or late last night after he went out for the evening, Blankenship said.
