3 additional arrests made in Trigg County drug death


Three additional arrests have been made in a Trigg County death investigation, bringing the total number of suspects to five.

The latest arrest came Sunday, according to Trigg County Sheriff Ray Burnam.

The sheriff said the suspect is a Cadiz woman accused of trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine).  Another Cadiz woman and a man from Cadiz were arrested on various drug charges, Burnam said.

Another man and woman from Cadiz were arrested at the end of August. No names have been released.

Burnam indicated all five suspects have something to do with the victim's death, who died due to an apparent drug overdose.

The sheriff posted his personal cell phone number on the department's Facebook page in hopes that more people will come forward with drug crime tips.

He says the personal method has already proven successful. He is particularly targeting fentanyl dealers.
