On July 24 paramedics arrived at Demi Lovato house and found her unresponsive as a result of an alleged heroin overdose.

In the report, the police department notes that they have seized blue Oxycodone pills marked with “A215.” The pills that were seized did not contain Oxycodone and were made with Fentanyl.
