Willmar Police Arrest Man After Apparent Deadly Overdose
WILLMAR (WJON News) -- One man is dead and another is in jail in Willmar after an apparent drug overdose.
Willmar police say just before 1:00 p.m. on Friday a 911 call was received indicating a 26-year-old man was found not breathing at a home in the 3100 block of 7th Avenue Northwest in Willmar.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say an investigation into the death showed evidence consistent with a drug overdose. A continued investigation developed a suspect for the sale of a controlled substance to the man who died a short time before the medical emergency.
