'Gray Death' found in Louisiana; officials say just touching it can kill 02/04/2020 11:15 am PST Facebook Logo Twitter Logo WHNT / St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office, La. via WHNT: FRANKLIN, La. (KLFY) (WHNT) -- Officials say a new drug found in Louisiana is so powerful, just touching it could kill you. They're calling this drug “Gray Death.” “The public recognizes a lot of the drugs that we deal with. This is a new one,” David Spencer, spokesperson for the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office, said. “Gray Death” is heroin that has been cut with Fentanyl, according to Spencer, and it is deadly. “Be aware of the color. It looks like chunks of concrete,” Spencer warned. “Gray Death” first started appearing in Alabama and Georgia in 2017. It then moved to Ohio and Pennsylvania. Now deputies say it's in Louisiana. “Gray Death” is reportedly 10,000 times more potent than morphine. Just touching the drug could kill you. Officials say if you come across this drug, you should not pick it up or even touch it. Instead, you should report it to authorities. The first sample of “Gray Death” in Louisiana was recently recovered from suspects from the Lake Charles area who were traveling across St. Mary Parish.
