PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - The Oakland County sheriff’s office says three people who died of suspected drug overdoses hours apart in Pontiac all appear to be unrelated cases.

In a news release Friday, the sheriff’s department says a laboratory analysis shows one of the victims used pure, high-grade heroin; one used a mixture of cocaine and fentanyl; and the other used cocaine only.

Deputies say a 31-year-old Waterford Township man was found dead in a bedroom Wednesday afternoon.

They say a 24-year-old Waterford man was found unresponsive in a McDonald’s parking lot about an hour later and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

And deputies say a 32-year-old Pontiac woman was found slumped over her sink and pronounced dead late Wednesday. A baby in the house was turned over to family members.
