Taylor County, like other areas, has seen a sharp uptick in heroin overdoses in recent days, some of them, tragically, fatal.
Among them was Misty Buley, 42, who died on Aug. 15.
Buley’s obituary, published by L.R. Petty Funeral Home, lists her death as an overdose. Her mother, Joyce Bennett, says she wanted that in the obituary as a warning to others about the dangers of drug abuse.
