Teacher found dead in Bronx school bathroom from apparent overdose

A teacher was found dead of an apparent overdose in a Bronx public school Thursday night, police sources said.

The 36-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was in a locked bathroom of Public School X811, a special education school on Longfellow Ave. near Jennings St., just before 6:10 p.m., sources said.

The teacher may have been dead for a few hours, since he was last seen at the end of the school day, sources said.

A staff member found him after forcing open the bathroom door, sources said. Police found drug paraphernalia near the teacher, including a glassine envelope with an unknown substance inside, sources said.
