CRANDON, Wis. (WAOW) -

The Forest County Sheriff's Department says a 29-year old man has died from a heroin overdose.

Warren K. VanZile died Nov. 29 after the sheriff's department received a 911 call requesting an ambulance for a man not breathing at 3159 State Highway 55 in the Town of Nashville, Sheriff John Dennee said Thursday.

Officers responded and life-saving efforts were unsuccessful, the sheriff said in a statement.

Investigators determined VanZile used heroin before he had trouble breathing, Dennee said.

Two people - Florence E. Gomez, 24,  and Noel Vandiver, 34, - were arrested in VanZile's death, the sheriff said.

No charges had been filed Thursday, according to online Forest County court records.
