Two people are dead after suspected overdose deaths in less than a week in the Lower St. Croix River Valley.
A 58-year-old woman was found dead in the 1300 block of Stagecoach Trail in Afton about 8 p.m. Saturday. She appeared to have injected something, Washington County sheriff's Cmdr. Brian Mueller said.
And a 48-year-old man was found dead in the 16000 block of 18th Street South in Lake St. Croix Beach just before 6 a.m. Thursday. He appeared to have mixed narcotics and alcohol, Mueller said.
Both cases are awaiting overdose confirmation from the medical examiner.
