Medical examiner says opiates, heroin are a countywide problem
Despite having what many would consider a very difficult job, St. Croix County medical examiner Patty Schachtner is passionate about her job, particularly when it comes to the growing number of drug-related deaths countywide.
Schachtner said that as she has worked around the county over the past year, she has heard more than once that heroin and opiates “are Hudson’s problem. That isn’t happening here.”
But she begs to differ and has the facts to back it up.
