VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) - A coroner says heroin overdoses likely killed a 20-year-old student at a northwestern Indiana college and an 18-year-old woman he was with.
Police say Abdullah Alqirnas of Saudi Arabia and Rachael Hill were found dead Sunday in Hill's Valparaiso apartment and that drug paraphernalia was near both of them.
The Times of Munster and the Post-Tribune of Merrillville report Alqirnas was a student at Valparaiso University. The school says he was a freshman who had recently completed English language studies at Arizona State University and was enrolled to study electrical engineering.
Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris says toxicology tests were conducted and Alqirnas' body was being shipped to Saudi Arabia.
