Police said they responded to a home in the area of Wetherell Street on calls of an unresponsive man who later was identified as Dustin Deschenes,35 of Manchester.  Dustin was pronounced dead at the scene.

It was later determined by officials that fentanyl/heroin were contributing factors.

Through an investigation, police found that Dustin’s brother, Dylan Deschenes, 33 of Manchester, got the drugs from Kahari Belcher, 25 of Hartford.
