Suicide by drugs: Two found dead in Wayne County

BUCKINGHAM TWP – Two New York residents were found dead and State Police said they apparently committed suicide with intentional drug overdoses.

Dead are Robert Knapp, 22, of Walden and Tara White, 43, of Hancock.

Troopers responded to the scene of a suspicious vehicle along Fall Brook Road near O&W Road in Buckingham Township, Wayne County, across the Delaware River from Hancock, at about noon on Monday, June 25. They observed a tent just off the road near the vehicle and inside the two victims were found dead.

Police found drug paraphernalia and a handwritten note indicating this was a double-suicide.
