How A Pittsburgh Neighborhood Became Region's Overdose Capital

BestsellerMagazine.com - CATEGORY Report update: TITLE

District Judge Richard King keeps closing files for his least favorite reason: Because the defendant has died of an overdose. For the most part, these aren't criminals, but defendants in civil cases, like evictions. "I do over 500, 600 landlord-tenant cases" each year, says Judge King, who lives in Carrick and holds court there in a room decorated with photos of Pittsburgh sports triumphs. "A lot of that is addiction. . The money goes to the drug. It doesn't go to the bills that need to be paid, and they get behind on the rent."
