Due to the record number of fentanyl overdose deaths in King County, Washington, the medical examiner is running out of places to store the dead bodies.
Seattle-King County Public Health Director Dr. Faisal Khan said during a recent Board of Health meeting, “The Medical Examiner’s Office is now struggling with the issue of storing bodies because the fentanyl-related death toll continues to climb. Obviously, they have finite space in the coolers they use and that space is now being exceeded on a regular basis.”
The county has already had 31 fentanyl overdose deaths in 2023 as of January 22. In 2022, King County saw 1,019 fatal overdoses, the highest number of overdose deaths the county has on record with Fentanyl being responsible for 686 of those deaths.
Kahn added, “The biggest driver of these fatal overdoses involves fentanyl in white powder and in fake pills, which are flooding the streets.” It was revealed last week that over half the record number of 310 homeless deaths among the homeless in Washington’s most populous county in 2022 were attributed to Fentanyl.

Is Covid over?
Yep, my exact thoughts. How could they possibly handle the fentanyl cases when the beds are filled with COVID patients?
THIS IS WHAT SEATTLE VOTED FOR.
IMO, the solution begins with declaring fentanyl as a Weapon of Mass Destruction.
Gee, where could all that fentanyl be coming from that is flooding the streets of American cities?
It couldn’t have anything to do with the wide-open Southern border, could it?
Not according to the Biden Admin which claims the border is “under control.” - yeah, under the control of the Mexican cartels.
this should be a blueprint on how to deal with out of control homeless, Distribute the Fentanyl every friday to the homeless camps and give then their last hoorah.
And why is anyone with a couple of functioning neurons to rub together taking King County’s word for these all being fentanyl deaths...?
So just outlaw fentynal. Works for guns....right? Sometimes I crack myself up.
Or it could be that they are sick of looking at Pramila Jayapal, possibly the ugliest person in Congress.
One way to rid ourselves of these shreds of human debris.
Just scoop them up, along with their “belongings”, with a front end loader and dump them in a dumpster.
I wonder how many of the mourning parents voted for Creepy Crime Boss Joe?
CORRECTION - dead bodies Due to Joe BIDEN!!
But why are they still in the morgue?
The bodies are stacking up because the are trying to find someone to claim the bodies and pay for the burial.
That’s what happens when you host homeless drug festivals in your city all day, every day.
Send the bodies to Biden.
“So just outlaw fentynal. Works for guns....right?”
You forgot, we also need to put up “Fentanyl-Free Zone” signs.
