(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Residents on the north side of the city have informed our newsroom about a serious and all-too-common occurrence that unfolded in the city today.

Today, in the same building where the incident spawned a police officer being spit on in the face and then the spitter getting slapped, a woman around 40-years-old was found dead in the bathroom.

Sources indicate that the woman was found on the toilet of the bathroom and appeared to have been deceased for some time as the body was blue, which shows no sign of blood circulation for some time. Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service are holding the scene.

We have heard of about 5 overdoses today alone in Thunder Bay. Reach out and speak with your family member or friend that uses drugs.

Reach out to the people at the Thunder Bay Counselling Centre so that you can steer your life towards sobriety. It may seem like that is impossible, but with the right team and determination, you can achieve it. Their phone number is 807-684-1880.

Always carry Narcan when you are using drugs. Narcan is a drug that is provided at no charge to you through many pharmacies. Further, always ensure you do not do drugs alone. Entering a bathroom and isolating yourself while you are doing drugs is dangerous.

  1. Maybe if staff at the detox wasn’t trying to party with people trying to get sober people would actually be getting clean but no one ever does a story about the real back room stuff that goes on in Tbay

    1. My mother worked for Detox for over 10 years, before dying of brain cancer in 2017, and she did not even smoke pot. I find that really offensive and maybe you should not talk about things you obviously don’t know a thing about. It’s ignorant.

  2. I used 2 love the city now I’m just scared of being there and doing anything!! I know a few addicts but if you are with someone and partying/doing drugs why are you not caring and watching out 4 each other!! Its really not all about the high, its somebodies life, no care about another human makes you a part of the problem, heartless and all!! Scared of saying something, making a life saving call but at least look ou 4 each other if you are in that kinda life and behaviour!! Its still a human life with family and friends who will mourn this person!

  4. Wow another death this is just so sad it’s like a death once a week or even two in a week dying something needs to happen to stop this from happening but how do u stop these low life dealers the gangs should go back to Toronto and Ottawa because they don’t care and too many people are dying in this city these people who are dying are moms dads uncles sisters brothers and it’s just getting out of control and we only hear about part of it I’m sure the police have more info than the residents in Thunder Bay I’m sure at one time it wasn’t so bad here something needs to change but no one is smart enough to change this crime here

    1. What you read about here is only a sample of the people dying from drugs in Dumpster Bay. There are many more OD deaths that families experience that never makes the news. There’s a drug epidemic happening in the city and our so called “leaders” are doing their best to suppress as much news about it as possible.

      Don’t want to make the city look worse than what it already is. Murder capital of Canada three years running and on it’s way to a fourth. That draws enough heat let alone exposing the dozens of overdose deaths and other drug related criminality.

  5. Population Control is great because these people honestly will bred and the normal citizens are always the ones who pay the price. Let’s hope for another 5 today.

    1. You’re hoping for the death of human beings? Looks like you’re the piece of shit. These people dying all have families. It’s people like you who make Thunder Bay an ignorant shithole, not the vulnerable people in society. This is what sets TBay apart, and it’s disgusting.

  6. I’ve been carrying a Narcan kit with me for quite a while now. I have yet to use it, ( thankfully ) but it’s always with me just in case..

  7. This is the reason people should shallow there pride and carry Naloxone kits if they know they will being using or be around people using opiates.

    There available free of charge at ElevateNWO

    The Good Samaritan Act, 2001, read about it.

  8. Dumpster bay. The recreational place to come up from Toronto and sell your goods , use the women ( hookers and addicts) for whatever suits your fancy and beat the shit out of anyone who fights the circle of life. Woohoo support you local n****r. He needs money to. Getting worse every single day. Disgusting how far they are willing to go and how brave they can be. Walking all over the mall and stores flashing the free money around.

  9. Not good business for dope dealers when their product kills the customer. Seems counterproductive.

    However, in the grand scheme of things, the fewer customers the dealer has, the better for the rest of us. How that reduction in customers happens is inconsequential to me.
