    What do you think should be done with drug mules/dealers after reading the news clip below? The deaths of two women, Lisa Liotta, 49, of Tunkhannock and Tonya Fenton, 38, of Laceyville may be linked to a batch of super strong heroin that may have found its way into the region.

    Wyoming County officials say the heroin may be as much as four times stronger than the typical dose.

    Officials are concerned because there have been several similar deaths in Lackawanna County within the past two months, as well as another unconfirmed death in eastern Wyoming County last week. All of these deaths occurred under similar circumstances and situations.

    Liotta was found on Oct. 2 on her property in Lemon Township by PA State Police Troopers. Fenton was found dead by family members in her home on Church Road on Oct. 3. Both deaths have been ruled not suspicious, according to police reports. However, the cause of death is pending the receipt of toxicology reports.
