CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, N.J. — Authorities say a 13-year-old in New Jersey died of a deadly mixture of heroin and fentanyl.

Vincent Weiner was found dead in Middle Township on June 4. It’s not clear where he obtained the drugs.

His mother, Jamie Lund, posted on Facebook that she was heartbroken and “whoever is supplying these babies with drugs, needs to be stopped.”

Cape May County Prosecutor Robert Taylor says the county has seen an increase in the number of heroin bags with fentanyl.

Taylor says fentanyl is approximately 100 times more potent than heroin.
