(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A man had moved to Thunder Bay, in search of a better life for himself. He was previously a resident of Vancouver, BC.
He smoked marijuana and had a side-business selling vapes on the side. His regular day job was the maintenance man at the Midtown Inn.
Sources indicate that the man was dabbling and experimenting with harder drugs such as crack cocaine and fentanyl. He is believed to have purchased the fentanyl from a well-known trafficker in the building.
The man is believed to have been in his late 30’s and died alone in his room on the second floor of the Midtown Inn. Ken Aylott, the manager of the building, was not around for comment when we contacted the motel. The person who answered the phone said he was “in Toronto on business”, before hanging up abruptly.
Officials have since removed the body from the building as an autopsy is expected to be underway.
The Midtown Inn has known drug traffickers frequenting the building, stabbings, overdoses, guns, and gang activity like no other building has ever had in Thunder Bay. The place is starting to make the Odd Fellows building look inviting.
This is the second confirmed fatal overdose we have heard about today and the third if we count unconfirmed fatal overdoses. Our counter for the day is 6 confirmed overdoses, two of which resulted in death.
