Two people – Orville Hugh King III and Joan Marie Parks – were arrested on indictment received from a Multi-Jurisdictional Grand Jury in Northumberland County on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017. This is in connection with the overdose death of Robert Steven Auman, a 51 year old man from Reedville in Northumberland County.

On April 4th, 2017 Northumberland Sheriff Office’s Deputies were dispatched to 132 Harbor Drive in Reedville where they found Auman on the floor, unresponsive. Auman was later pronounced dead at the scene. Witnesses stated that Auman had used heroin earlier that day. The medical examiner also found Fentanyl in Auman’s body.
