LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)—Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell released a statement about his son’s heroin overdose.

His son, 33-year-old Matt O’Connell, was found dead in May in the 1800 block of Payne Street. Police found his body in a car outside an apartment building.

O’Connell’s statement reads:

“Parents and families across Kentucky are experiencing the same powerlessness our family has faced when watching a loved one fight to overcome his addiction. Painfully, even when there have been successes, there are also sometimes tragic outcomes.”
