Children find parents dead of apparent overdose in Ohio home

Police on the scene at and near Lee High School

Police say the bodies of 36-year-old Brian Halye and 34-year-old Courtney Halye were found by their children Thursday morning in Centerville, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Cincinnati.

The children have been placed in the care of family members, WDTN reports.

The Daily News reports Brian Hayle had been an active pilot for the past nine years for Spirit Airlines and was the captain of a passenger jet last Friday.

Brian Halye was a pilot for Spirit Airlines which operates out of the Cleveland-Akron Area, but does not operate at CVG.

The couple was dead in their bedroom.

The couple's juvenile children were confused after their parents failed to wake them for school. His sisters, who are younger than he is, can be heard in the background crying.

The kid called saying his parents in the home would not wake up. The Hayles' son told 911 dispatchers that his parents were very cold to the touch.

The son added that one of his sisters said their father was "pale" and there were black lines all over his face.

Four children in OH awoke to a nightmare on Friday when they found their parents dead of an apparent drug overdose.

The mother said her daughter was a Type 1 diabetic and being treated for depression and had been prescribed medication. She told police that her daughter threatened to harm herself and had been abusing narcotic drugs.

But Casey, 51, does not believe the Halyes were dependent on drugs.

But she had a bad feeling after she talked to them earlier in the day.

He said he was anxious that she was trying to get to two unloaded guns he kept in the house.

When Brian Hayle entered the house, his wife had both of the guns in her hands.

Officers arrived on the scene in less than two minutes and found two adults dead at the scene.

Also contacting police in January 2016 was husband, Brian Halye, who had called to report his wife missing. She was taken to the hospital for treatment. From 2013 to 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids went up by 80 percent.

The preliminary cause of death appears to be an accidental overdose of fentanyl, an opiate many times more powerful than heroin, said Montgomery County Coroner's Office Director Ken Betz.

It's been reported the couple died from a, "heroin-fentanyl related death".
