Arrest made in Overdose death

Saxonburg police Tuesday arrested Tedilee Sweeney, 39, of Arnold in the death of 35-year-old Drew A. Lydick on Aug. 15, 2016. Thirteen months after a borough man died of an overdose, authorities have charged a Westmoreland County woman with providing him the lethal mix of drugs.

His father admitted that his son had a substance abuse problem.

Police found Lydick’s body on the bed, next to a laptop computer. It appeared he had been dead for some time.

Police also found several bottles of prescription medication.

She is being held in the Butler County Prison on $50,000 bail.2-9
