Police in Huntington are looking into what could be another death linked to heroin. Tara Rose died Monday after overdosing on Friday. She was 21 years old.

A man from Detroit was with her at the time and called 911. Police are still waiting for toxicology reports to confirm that heroin was to blame.

Heroin has been involved in nine deaths in Cabell County this year. Seven of the nine deaths have occurred in the past three months.

The numbers are up dramatically from previous years. Only four heroin deaths were reported from 2001 to 2006.
