Heroin Killed Missing Pataskala Woman

Sep 11, 2012

The Delaware County Coroner's office says a pregnant woman found dead in her car last month died of acute heroin intoxication.

The manner of death of 23-year-old Deanna Ballman of Pataskala has yet to be determined. An autopsy found no signs of trauma. Relatives say Ballman disappeared while going to a house-cleaning job in New Albany she found through an online classified ad.
