Heroin suspected in Missouri woman's death

PACIFIC, Mo. (AP) -- Investigators in Franklin County say heroin is suspected in the death of a 32-year-old woman.

The victim, from Pacific, died May 10 after being rushed to a St. Louis County hospital. Her name has not been released.

Narcotics detective Jason Grellner told the Washington Missourian investigators will seek homicide or manslaughter charges against a suspect who supplied heroin to the victim.

Toxicology tests will determine if heroin caused her death.

Investigators say they have seen a growing number of heroin overdoses in recent years.
