The photo depicts an apparent crime scene. The body is face-down on a couch, next to a coffee table. The floor is cluttered with trash.
New Bedford police spokesman Lt. Jeffrey P. Silva said the picture — if it is authentic — may depict an overdose victim. It is unclear whether the person is a man or woman.
“There will be an internal investigation to see if this is true,” Silva said. “Right now, this is just an allegation.”
