Overdose proves fatal


Washington Township Police responded to a “man down” call around 9:30 p.m. Friday at Mann’s Apartments, 7165 Hancock Drive, Russells Point, where they found a man unconscious and began performing CPR.

Authorities said John William Knox, 49, was at a neighboring apartment watching movies with a friend. The friend said he fell asleep and awoke to find Mr. Knox unresponsive and slumped over.

An Indian Lake squad was called in and took over lifesaving efforts on Mr. Knox, who was later pronounced dead at Mary Rutan Hospital.

Officers said a son of Mr. Knox called to the scene and reported a new bottle of prescription medication was empty.
