Assist/Student Conduct
Blumel residence hall
Officers Rominger and Buck and Sergeant McLeary responded to a dorm in Blumel after hearing PPB being dispatched to a heroin overdose. In the dorm, non-student Ryan Ellis Kelly was lying on his back on the ground, and his face and fingers were turning blue from lack of oxygen. The student resident had been performing chest compressions while on the phone with 911. Sergeant McLeary took over chest compressions when he arrived and performed them until fire and ambulance crews arrived. Kelly was injected with Narcan a total of six times and had to have an endotracheal intubation to open his windpipe before he became responsive. Kelly was listed in stable condition at a local hospital.

The student resident was interviewed about the narcotics activity and stated she was a recovering heroin user who had relapsed six days prior, and had newer track marks on her arms. She stated Kelly was an acquaintance and she didn’t know he was using her bathroom to use heroin. She turned over a glass jar containing marijuana and a glass pipe with marijuana residue to officers when asked if there were more narcotics in the dorm; these items were seized and marked for destruction. The student resident had her four-year-old son present in the dorm during the entirety of the narcotics activity.

The report was forwarded to the Dean of Student Life, Housing, and Child Protective Services.
