Two charged in Southern Shores overdose death

By on September 30, 2019

The Southern Shores Police Department has charged two people with involuntary manslaughter and selling heroin in connection with an overdose death that occurred nearly a year ago.

On Oct. 29, 2018, the Southern Shores Police Department responded to an overdose death of a 26-year-old male at a residence located on Duck Woods Drive in Southern Shores. After an extensive investigation, the department has charged Jake Garland Hodges, 30, of Rodanthe, and Jessica Mercedes Baudeloque, 28, of Kill Devil Hills, with involuntary manslaughter and the sale and delivery of heroin in connection to the overdose death. Both subjects have been arrested and placed under $75,000 bonds.

The Southern Shores Police Department would like to thank the Nags Head Police Department for its assistance in this case.
