A look the regional opioid crisis by K.Burnell Evans:

A woman who drew her last breath behind Franklin Military Academy in the city’s East End was among the 80 to die of an opioid overdose this year in the Richmond region.

School was out for the summer. She was pregnant.

“I just can’t get it out of my head,” said Del. Delores L. McQuinn, D-Richmond, whose district encompasses the school. “It is my hope and my prayer that we can get to the bottom of this.”
