May 6, 2022 – Ohio State University officials sounded the alarm Thursday over the circulation of “fake Adderall” pills laced with fentanyl following the death of a student and the hospitalization of two others. 

“Our community has suffered a tragic loss with the death of one of our students earlier today,” OSU President Kristina Johnson said in a message shared with students, faculty and staff on Thursday. 

Johnson said another student was hospitalized in critical condition, while a third had been released from the hospital. She did not identify the dead student or the students who were hospitalized. 

“Our hearts ache for our fellow Buckeyes and their loved ones,” she said.
