Construction Workers Die From Overdoes, Coroner Says

Last updated on Friday, March 16, 2007

(WESTFIELD) - The Hamilton County coroner’s office says two men found dead at a Westfield construction site died from an overdose of drugs and alcohol.

Dennis Franklin and Roderick MacDonald both had several times the legal dose of the painkiller Darvon in their system when they died and both were legally drunk.

The two men were found in a building where they'd been hanging drywall. Officials say the overdoses appear accidental.
