Two brothers die following apparent drug overdose

GRANGER, Ind. - St Joseph County Police responded to a call of two unresponsive males around 11:00 a.m. Sunday at a home on Woodington Court in Granger.

Two brothers, 19-year-old Nick Savage and 18-year-old Jack Savage, both died.

Police believe the drugs and alcohol may have played a role in their deaths.

Police believe the drugs and alcohol involved were first taken at a home in the 1500 block of Bryanton Court in Granger because a medic was called for an overdose at 1:30 a.m. on Sunday at that location.

While investigating the deaths of the Savage brothers, officers responded to a third location, a home on Copper Penny Drive in Granger, and found a fourth person possibly suffering from a drug overdose.

The initial autopsy shows that the drugs used were prescription drugs.

The St. Joseph County Coroner said complete toxicology results won't be available for at least six more weeks.

Nick graduated from Penn High School in 2014. Jack graduated from Penn in 2015. They both played hockey for Penn.

Guidance counselors will be available for students at Penn High School this week.

No charges have been filed at this time.

The investigation is ongoing.
