Man, 59, dies from apparent overdose in his Minnetonka home; suspect at scene arrested
A 59-year-old man died in a Minnetonka home from a suspected drug overdose, and a 23-year-old man who was there at the time has been arrested, authorities said.
A 911 call at roughly 8 a.m. Sunday from the house in the 2000 block of Pine Island Road brought officers to the scene, where the man was located and unresponsive, police said.
The suspect, a 23-year-old man from Maple Grove, made the 911 call and was present when officers arrived. He was arrested and remains jailed on suspicion of second-degree manslaughter.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiners Office will release the identity of the dead man and the cause of death.
The suspect has yet to be charged. The Star Tribune generally does not identify suspects before they are charged.
