With the drug krokodil making its way from Russia to the Southwest and allegedly into the Chicago area, the flesh-eating bastardized heroin substitute could be injecting itself into the arteries of the midwest.
Columbus, Ohio officials tell WBNS-TV that a homelesss man was discovered recently with evidence on his skin of krokodil use. “The patient had a large, open wound and it is consistent with what we’ve been seeing, or the trend when people use this type of medicine,” Columbus Division of Fire Deputy Chief Jim Davis said.
The man was the first suspected case of krokodil use in the Central Ohio region, but Davis said he is warning his entire department to watch for the drug. Ohio Poison Center authorities say only two other possible cases have shown up in the state, but neither were in Columbus.
