(CBS4, April 12) – Kris Randall thumbed through a family photo album, remembering the good times before September of 2015 when her son overdosed on a dangerous cocktail of heroin and fentanyl, a synthetic opiate.

Dillon was 21 years old, a graduate of Summit High School. He loved to fish and be in the outdoors. Kris says her son sadly got caught up in drugs, but she says he was trying to get his life back on the right tracks when he overdosed. 

Dillon’s father, a local firefighter came home from work on that horrible day to find his only son dead. That same morning another young man was found dead of a drug overdose on the other side of town.
