Fentanyl overdose suspected in death of 14-year-old Hays CISD student

Just days before students return to Hays CISD after winter break, the death of a 14-year-old student is under the microscope due to an epidemic that has rocked the school district since last year.

According to a Community Impact report, a 14-year-old girl was found unconscious in her home on January 3, but attempts to save her life were unsuccessful. The city of San Marcos told Community Impact that the girl’s toxicology report is still being processed, but a fentanyl overdose is suspected.

MySA requested comments from Hays CISD but did not receive an immediate response.

In the last six months at Hays CISD, four students have died of fentanyl overdoses. The 14-year-old schoolboy would be the fifth death if the cause of death was confirmed to be fentanyl.

She wasn’t the only one in the school district who was suspected of overdosing on fentanyl during the holidays. According to the report, three other students, still in the seventh grade, suffered fentanyl overdoses, but all three survived.
