    I live 3 houses down from where the girl died. I've seen her around the neighborhood and sometimes I saw her smoking on her boyfriend's front porch when I came home from school. Her name was Alex. I heard that she and her boyfriend went to a party the night before her death, and my friend stopped by today and said that she overdosed on heroin with a mixture of fentanyl. The boyfriend, Tyler, is in the hospital I think, and he may go to jail for giving a 17-year-old drugs (he is over 18).
    I never really talked to Alex, but she was a very beautiful girl, and may she rest in peace… R.I.P
