By Sharon Graves

A second Carrollton death has been linked to drug abuse by the Carroll County coroner.

David Wilhoite said Keith O’Connor, 23, died Oct. 23 as the result of “multiple substance intoxication.”

According to the report, the state medical examiner’s office and an independent laboratory found oxymorphone, amphetamines, marijuana, hydrocodone and hydromorphone in O’Connor’s system at the time of his death.

Wilhoite said the type of amphetamine was unknown, and said it could have come from an over-the-counter sinus medication.
