Ohio county claims top spot in America’s opioid death spiral
DAYTON, Ohio, June 21 (Reuters) – Scott Weidle is struggling with the death of his son Daniel, who died from a heroin overdose 18 months ago, one day after Christmas.
Daniel, who was 30 when he died, was a father of three young boys: Dylan, Landon and Gavin.
“I got the call laying on the beach,” Weidle, 58, said. “Worst day of my life.”
Weidle, a sand and gravel contractor in Montgomery County, Ohio, said he could never have imagined his son becoming a statistic in the United States’ growing opioid crisis.
