April 7, 2022 – Less than a week earlier, on March 4, 21 individuals overdosed — 3 of whom died — at a homeless shelter in downtown Austin Texas, after ingesting crack-cocaine and methamphetamine laced with fentanyl. 

Back in January on the 28th, 10 individuals overdosed — 9 of which died — all on the same city block in Washington D.C. after ingesting crack-cocaine laced with fentanyl. 

“It was sirens all day long, all night,” a 68-year-old Washington D.C. female resident told Washington Post reporters when she heard about the overdoses in January. “This is usually a heroin area. Heroin doesn’t bring all that noise. This was something different.”
