A Portland Public Schools official told KGW that a Franklin High School student died from what is thought to be an overdose of fentanyl. The official said that the student had died over the weekend, but didn’t say anything else about it.
A spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau said that police are looking into the death of a 15-year-old girl from an overdose that happened on Saturday morning at an address that is not right next to a school.
Police say that the Narcotics and Organized Crime unit is looking into the case.
“She had her whole life ahead of her, and now her family is dealing with funerals and celebrations of life,” said Michele Stroh, whose son died of a fentanyl overdose in 2020.
She said, “I still look for my son.” “It’s gonna be three years, I’ll still stop … can’t text him, can’t call him, can’t share with him.”
