Drug deaths in New Hampshire are projected to increase yet again this year, according to data released by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
The data show a projection of 482 drug deaths for 2016 compared to 439 for 2015. As of the time of the release, 196 drug deaths have been confirmed.
Eighty were caused by fentanyl use - making it the most prevalent killer.
One hundred and one cases are "pending toxicology." Due to the fact that it takes two to three weeks for the results to be confirmed as drug deaths, and a sudden increase in confirmations does not indicate a sudden increase in deaths, as the event(s) could have occurred much earlier.
