Fatal Overdose At Point Boro Stop & Shop; Tainted Heroin Possible

A 42-year-old man was found dead last week in the Stop & Shop bathroom on Bridge Avenue in Point Pleasant Boro in what authorities believe was an overdose of tainted heroin.

On Jan. 10, police discovered the Jersey City man had suspected heroin and five additional wax folds stamped “Bud Light” in red in his possession. He was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene, according to Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato. 

Coronato warned that this overdose may have been caused by a batch of heroin that included toxic elements which prove fatal without medical attention. 

He said the same heroin was likely used a day later, when Seaside Heights Police were called to a Blaine Avenue residence and found a 32-year-old local man dead in the bathroom.

In that case, investigators also found wax folds at the residence stamped “Bud Light” in red, containing suspected heroin. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. 

An autopsy in both deaths will be conducted and law enforcement will test the drugs to determine their composition. 

Anyone with information on individuals selling the “Bud Light” heroin stamp or with information on possible dealers should contact: the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, Special Operations Group at (732) 929-2027 ext. 3235.

David, I'm truly very sorry for your loss. I'm sure everyone that was close to him will miss him very much. I heard about the incident a couple days ago and I was shocked to learn that he used to be classmates with one of my teachers.

To the other people that are making nasty and stupid comments....Shut up. Drug addiction is not a choice. I don't take the use of drugs lightly and every time I hear of a death related to drugs I cry and wish there were no such things as drugs. Sure you can call them Molly or Mary Jane but they will lead to deaths eventually. They aren't funny or to make light of. Don't call them junkies. Oh and WMS? Don't be an ass.
