    CLEARFIELD, Pa.-- A Pennsylvania coroner says a Guatemalan found dead over a guardrail had swallowed up to $500,000 worth of heroin and was killed when one of the packets burst.

    Clearfield County Coroner Mike Morris tells WJAC-TV he's working with state police and drug enforcement agents to determine the source and destination of the drugs.

    Morris says the man's name is Boris Reyes, though he has yet to confirm the man's age.

    A passing motorist found the body along a rural road on Sept. 16.

    Authorities had suspected Reyes was a drug courier. They say tests indicate he had swallowed "multiple packets" of heroin worth a total of $250,000 to $500,000.

  1. Name goes here
    Instead of making up numbers, why couldn't they say he swallowed x amount of heroin in a weight rather then value? There's a slight difference between 1/4 million and half million dollars.

    Somebody's going to be pissed they didn't get there shipment.

    I concur with Namegoeshere.

    It seems absurd when a drug bust happens, and the drugs are evaluated at whatever the street price per dose might have been. 2 balloons in some dude's colon worth of heroin is a different dollar amount than those 2 balloons cut up for final sale.

    The worst is when they claim in a Cannabis bust the dollar value by weight including the non-flower parts, pots, dirt etc.
