The drugs that led to overdoses of five women at the George W. Hill Correctional Facility in Delaware County one of whom died was smuggled in by the teenage son of one of the women during a Christmas Day visit hours earlier, sources close to the investigation said Thursday.
According to The Baltimore Sun, inmate Kathleen Fisher, 36, of Folcroft, told investigators from the GEO Group, the private company that runs the jail, that her son passed her the narcotic during holiday visitation hours, according to jail sources who described him as about 16 or 17. Fisher then shared the drug with four other women on her floor, the sources said.
