MARLETTE — The Marlette Police Dept. is investigating the apparent heroin overdose of a couple on Lamotte Street on Sept. 2.

Police said the female started breathing again and was transported to Marlette Regional Hospital and later transferred out.

A 26-year-old male seeking treatment for a suspected overdose was also taken to Marlette Region Hospital by private vehicle.
