Cheese Heroin Reappears at Thomas Jefferson

"Cheese," the cheap-as-hell mixture of cold medicine and black tar heroin, is again rearing its head at DISD's Thomas Jefferson High School. The school, which was known by students as the Cheesehead Factory, had reportedly done a pretty good job of ridding if from their hallways.

Now, another student has died of an apparent overdose. According to police, detectives are investigating the death of a 14-year-old TJ student who was found dead at a home in Northwest Dallas. Police are also investigating the death of a 17-year-old Garland boy found dead in an apartment in the 11600 block of Ferguson Road.

Police are waiting on a toxicology report in both cases.
