“Willows, CA – Tuesday July 19, 2022, Update – On July 1, 2022, Glenn County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the property of 200 Garden Street in Willows to investigate a report of suspicious death. The property owner reported he checked a travel trailer located on the property and found two male subjects inside. One deceased and the other experiencing a medical emergency.
Glenn County Sheriff’s Deputies and EMS responded and found a 39-year-old male inside the trailer who was experiencing a medical emergency. EMS transported the male subject to the hospital. Glenn County Sheriff’s Deputies found 28-year-old Jordan Windus of Corning deceased inside of the trailer.
Glenn Investigations and Narcotics Task Force and CA DOJ responded to assist with the death investigation. During the investigation, Sheriff’s Deputies located small amounts of Methamphetamine and Fentanyl inside of the trailer. GLINTF agents completed the death investigation.
Next of kin was notified of the decedent’s death. Following the completion of an autopsy, investigators determined there were no indicators of foul play and the death appeared to be drug related. The official cause of death is pending the return of toxicology reports.
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid narcotic that is approximately 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin. Due to the high potency of Fentanyl, ingestion, or exposure to even an extraordinarily small amount can result in life-threatening overdoses. Depending on purity, ingestion of just 2 milligrams, the size equal to a few grains of salt can lead to an overdose.”
