CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Carson City sheriff's deputies are investigating the fatal heroin overdose of a 23-year-old man.

Sheriff Ken Furlong says the unnamed victim was pronounced dead just after 10:30 a.m. Wednesday after officers were called to a home on Menlo Drive. He says drug paraphernalia was found at the scene.

In a separate case, Furlong says three suspects were arrested Wednesday at a Carson City apartment on drug charges, including one who reportedly overdosed on heroin.

That man, 45-year-old Richard Vonderscher, was treated at Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center and arrested shortly after his discharge about 9:40 p.m.

He's been arrested on suspicion with unlawful use of a controlled substance, possession of a drug paraphernalia and a hypodermic device.

48-year-old Ann Syphus-Freed was arrested for suspicion of maintaining a drug house.
