CHERRY VALLEY - A 20 year-old woman is the latest victim of heroin.

Authorities were called to the Days Inn on Lyford Road early Thursday morning.  Paramedics tried to keep the woman alive, but she died on the way to OSF.

Winnebago County Coroner Sue Fidducia says there've been nine heroin-related deaths so far this year.

While heroin hasn't been officially ruled as the cause of death, Fidducia says it's very likely.  Once that is confirmed, it'll be Winnebago County's 10th heroin-related death.  Fiduccia says that's on pace with 2013's rate.
