Faribault Police Investigating Fentanyl Overdose Deaths
The Faribualt Police Department and Cannon River Drug and Violent Offender Task Force are investigating two Fentenyl overdose deaths in Faribault.
In a joint news release from Faribault Police Chief Andy Bohlen and CRDVO Task Force Commander Paul LaRoche authorities are asking for the public's assistance in their investigation.
The news release says;
"On Saturday, January 9, 2021, the Faribault Police Department responded to a residence in the 200 block of 2nd Street NE for two reported deceased persons. The reporting party stated she came to the residence to pick up her child, and upon entering the residence found a male and female deceased on the floor. She exited the residence with her child and called police. Initial investigation indicates the two died from a narcotics overdose."
"They are identified as Luis Carrillo, 28, and Amber Low, 33, both of Faribault. Agents of the Cannon River Drug and Violent Offender Task Force also responded to assist with the investigation. The Hennepin County Medical Examiners Office is conducting the autopsies."
"Pills found at the residence are consistent with those found with other overdoses nationwide also under investigation. The pills are round white pills imprinted with an “M” on one side and “30” on the other (see photos). The pills appear similar to legitimate prescription Oxycodone pills, which are blue. The suspect pills often contain fentanyl, a powerful narcotic which is linked to overdoses."
"Additionally, the pills were found in small plastic “gem bags” printed with black spades on them (see photos). Persons finding these pills are advised to not ingest them. They may turn them in to the Cannon River Drug and Violent Offender Task Force, or dispose of them in the drop-box at the Rice County Sheriff’s Office."
"Anyone with information about these deaths or other overdoses is asked to contact Agent Jeff Burbank at 507-334-0945."
