Young mayor of Mount Carbon dies at 23

The 23-year-old mayor of Mount Carbon was found dead early Thursday and many remembered him as an energetic member of the community.

Details of Brandon M. Wentz’s death were not released Thursday. State police Trooper David Beohm, public information officer for Troop L, Reading, said he had no information to provide.

Schuylkill County Deputy Coroner Albert Barnes said he pronounced Wentz dead at 7:58 a.m. Thursday. Barnes declined to provide additional information.

“I was asked by state police not to comment,” Barnes said. “Next of kin has been notified.”

1. I think opioids are a leading cause of death for young people

in many areas of Pennsylvania.

So sad.

On edit: I heard on TV tonight that it was from pulmonary congestion. Such a shame.
