MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- Kevin Bush’s mind is full of questions, his heart now empty.
On Saturday, Bush received the phone call he expected years ago when the young lady he helped raise was addicted to heroin.
But after beating heroin, Destiny Williams became addicted to meth, then was clean for several months, Bush told WCPO media partner the Journal-News.
So he was “stunned” when he learned that Williams, 24, was found dead of an apparent drug overdose at 2:05 p.m. Saturday behind a closed restaurant on South Main Street. Police said Williams was pronounced dead at the scene, and Robert Childers, 45, her boyfriend, was unconscious when he was found by police.
Childers was transported to Atrium Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition for several hours. On Monday, Middletown police said they interviewed Childers about the events that led up to the dumping and they expect him to make a full recovery, said Maj. Scott Reeve.
