Narcotics Smuggled into County Jail

Within the past week, two individuals have been found bringing contraband into the Franklin County Jail. Deputies suspected a male subject who had been ordered to serve 30 days on a drug charge was going to smuggle narcotics into the jail. When to he arrived, deputies questioned him and he admitted to having narcotics hidden in a body cavity. Officials say he was unable to remove the items and was taken to Mercy Hospital in Washington where they were surgically removed. Authorities seized a spoon, ΒΌ gram of heroin, a lighter, and a syringe. A second male subject, currently on work release, was confronted by deputies as he returned to the jail. It was determined that he had tobacco hidden in a body cavity that was later removed. Both subjects are facing charges of bringing contraband into a jail facility. Names are being withheld at this time. One is an 18-year-old from Sullivan, the other is a 29-year-old from Catawissa.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
