Overwhelmed by Overdose: Part III of Investigating Hotels Series


In Part III of the Investigating Hotels Series, WBON-TV reached out to Madison County EMS Director Carlos Coyle to ascertain how many overdoses are actually occurring in Madison County, and if these instances are in fact concentrated in certain locations.

He responds that there is an overwhelming amount of calls regarding overdoses to these locations. However, because of the large scale of the drug epidemic, these incidents occur on Richmond streets and in private homes just as well: that addiction does not discriminate.

In the next video for the series, Marisa Hempel speaks to Richmond Police Chief James Ebert about the crime aspect of this topic, and the open records request which details the high call volumes to these locations.
