DOVER - Dover Police announced today that they and the Office of The Chief Medical Examiner are investigating the death of a Dover man thought to have overdosed on Thursday.
Dover Police and Fire responded around 3:25 a.m. to a residence on Adelle Drive after a friend reported finding Trevar Delisle, 23, unresponsive. Delisle, a Dover resident who was visiting the residence on Adelle Drive, was found to be deceased.
While the cause and manner of Delisle's death will ultimately be determined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, based on the investigation to date it appears to be drug related. If in fact Delisle's death is due to a drug overdose, it will be the third confirmed in Dover in 2019, which had 10 suspected drug related deaths last year.
Delisle's obituary published in The Rochester Voice on Sunday said he suffered from addiction.
