There’s a potentially deadly batch of heroin being sold in Ocean County and law enforcement officials are hoping to get the word out. Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato said wax folds of a powdery substance with a picture of “Hello Kitty” stamped on it were near the body of an 18-year-old found dead in a Stafford Township residence on Saturday, June, 21st.

According to the prosecutor’s office, Stafford Township Police and MONOC First Aid Squad arrived late Saturday morning and found a deceased the 18-year-old male laying on his back on the floor of a bedroom in the residence. First responders also noticed the stamped wax folds normally used to hold heroin at the scene.

In his press release, “Prosecutor Coronato cautions that this death may have been caused by the batch of heroin that included elements which would prove fatal without medical attention. The Ocean County Lab has found that the tested residual product found at the scene of the Stafford death was almost entirely composed of Fentanyl with a yet to be determined cutting agent.”

They’re asking anyone with information regarding individuals selling the “Hello Kitty” character heroin stamp or with information on possible dealers to contact the Special Operations Group at (732) 929-2027 ext. 3235.
