Heroin likely involved in gas station restroom death

Wednesday, 15 January 2014 02:21 Published in Local News

   Metro-east police say the death of a Worchester, NY woman inside a gas station restroom was probably drug related.  

   Madison County Sheriff Robert Hertz says 25 year old Angela Lamar, a Belleville native, had been traveling through Illinois with her boyfriend, a truck driver, when the couple stopped at a gas station along I-70 just outside of Highland.  

   Lamar was unresponsive when she was found inside the station restroom around 1:00 a.m. Sunday.  She was pronounced dead at St. Joseph's Hospital in Highland.  

   The Belleville News-Democrat reports that investigators seized a syringe and heroin-filled capsules during their investigation.  Sheriff Hertz says investigators suspect a drug overdose, but toxicology tests are still pending.

   Health officials are reminding residents, there is still time to get a flu shot. Due to the high number of cases in the region, Barnes-Jewish Hospital is providing free flu shots to people 18 year old and older next week. The shots will be offered at a two-day clinic.
   This year’s vaccine is well-matched to protect against the strain of H1N1 hitting relatively young and middle-aged adults particularly hard this winter.
   Barnes-Jewish has reported 9 deaths from the flu so far this year and the peak flu season is just getting underway.
   The shots will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, January 20-21, at the O’Fallon Park Rec Complex, 4343 West Florissant, St. Louis.
