YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Youngstown Police and investigators with the Mahoning County Coroner’s Office are looking into a number of suspected overdose deaths from the New Year’s holiday weekend.

Police were called to a home on South Osborn Avenue on Monday afternoon and found a 51-year-old man and a 62-year-old woman dead.

Investigators said drug paraphernalia was found at the scene, leading them to suspect that the two may have overdosed.
