Mystery surrounds orange wristband deaths

Authorities in Pittsburgh are investigating a series of incidents involving people wearing orange wristbands.
The mystery first surfaced in the early hours of Sunday morning when reports came in of an unconscious man with an orange wristband who was found in the south side of the city.

Shortly afterwards another unconscious man, again wearing an orange wristband, was discovered in an elevator two blocks away.

Efforts were made to resuscitate him however he was later pronounced dead at the scene.

A further search of the building yielded a further two dead men and three more unconscious. All five of them were wearing the same orange wristbands as the first two.
"We're trying to figure out where they were last night," said public safety spokesman Chris Togneri.

Authorities have speculated that some sort of drug overdose could be responsible.

"It appears to have been isolated to a single location," officials said in a statement. "However, police are concerned about a tainted, potentially deadly batch of drugs in the community."

The precise significance of the orange wristbands however continues to remain unclear.

not to sound too weenee ( which i am on this subject ) but this is why i never tried recreational drugs, some deaths i knew of, i knew of a cocaine dealer, girls flocked to him, and not just for the dope, he has drugs on him police chance him and while hiding behind a dumpster he swallows all his stash, killed him pretty quickly.   i knew of a guy i didnt like much real arrogant spud, went to jail for shooting up his friend and killing him and rather than take dying friend to hostpital he dumps him on the street i heard. i knew a  nice19 yo kid, shot up a hot mix and died on a street corner......

There is nothing romantic about drug abuse. It surprices me that some rock stars is still alive like Robert Smith, Iggy Pop, Nikky six, Ozzy osbourne etc.

Robert Smith?

Yes Robert Smith (The Cure) they recently got inducted to the Rock n' Roll hall of fame. He made the album Pornography in 1982 cause he had to choose between making an album or to die of drug abuse. Needless to say they were on so much drugs the album almost wasn't made.
