Officials investigate man’s death as a drug overdose

The death of a 29-year-old man, whose body was discovered Tuesday at a home in the 16000 block of Highland Valley Road, is being investigated Wednesday as the likely result of a drug overdose.

The man was found dead in the Poway home shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Though homicide detectives were initially called to investigate, it is now believed the man most likely died of a drug overdose and not a violent incident, sheriff’s Lt. Kelly Martinez said.

His name was not released.
