Recommended Posts

The Chemung County Sheriff’s Office is currently conducting a death investigation, which occurred at the Chemung County Jail on February 27, 2018, at approximately 10:10 a.m.According to the Sheriff's Department, correctional staff were conducting a housing unit search when an inmate, identified as 35 year old Leo Disbrow swallowed an illegal narcotic contraband.

It was unknown to officers that the inmate had swallowed the contraband. A short time later, Disbrow began exhibiting overdose symptoms, at 
which time medical staff was summoned and he was transported to a local hospital.

The preliminary investigation indicates that Disbrow, who entered the facility on Friday 2/23/18, utilized a method referred to as "boofing" to enter the jail with the contraband.

Interestingly- or not so- Disbrow's recent "girlfriend", (at the very least was in cahoots with Disbrow in mid December when he was incarcerated in Steuben County jail)  was arrested yesterday as well for possession of a controlled substance...had been in a long term relationship with another drug user who also passed away from an overdose (fetanyl patches) 16-20 months ago. How's that for your conscience.... certainly not something to add "substance" to your online dating profile.

The pathetic thing is that all of these overdose deaths are all connected, friend wise, and call each other "fam" . Well hell, if multiple members of my "fam" kept dropping from this poison, I'd either look for a new "fam" or take a real long hard look at my life choices. Russian Roulette- it's just a matter of time.

Aren't they all?

I was in Burlington Coat Factory yesterday to get something for one of my boys, and saw a bunch of the "fam" also shopping for funeral suits.
