Alyssa Thorne Obituary, Death – It has been determined that one of the adolescents who passed away on Tuesday in Fayette County from what is believed to be a heroin overdose was the daughter of one of the parents. According to her father, Mark Thorne, Alyssa Thorne is currently 16 years old. Authorities and family members have not disclosed the identities of a second young woman who passed away and of a third student who is currently in critical condition in the hospital.
According to Fayette County Schools, both of them were 17 years old. Although an autopsy has not yet been performed, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office has stated that they believe the fatalities to be the consequence of an overdose. It has not yet been determined what caused the deaths. Thorne has expressed his strong belief that the drug cocaine laced with fentanyl was the cause of his daughter’s death.
Thorne stated that he lives several hours away, and Alyssa stated that she had been raised in a foster home. According to him, the conversation took place on Tuesday morning at about 5 a.m. via FaceTime. The pupils were located at Fayette Ware High School at approximately 4:40 on Tuesday, only a few hours before the commencement ceremony, according to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office. The probe is being helped along by the Tennessee Bureau of the Probe, which is working with the sheriff’s office.
According to Chief Deputy Ray Garcia, Fayette County has already had 42 overdoses in 2023, with four of those resulting in fatalities. He stated that he had no idea what was causing the sudden increase in the number of instances. The students that were involved were juniors at the high school, according to a news release that was issued by Fayette County Schools on Wednesday. They assured us that grief counselors would be available to both the faculty and the pupils. At five o’clock on Thursday, there will be a vigil in the school’s rear parking lot during which balloons will be released.
