A 15-year old from Salem faces murder and drug charges in the overdose death of another teenager. The juvenile is in custody but his name has not been released. Salem police say he's charged with felony homicide and distribution of methadone in connection with the death of 18- year old Joseph Ryan Lawrence. Lawrence and another 18 year old were taken to the hospital last May suffering from what police thought was a drug overdose. Lawrence died at the hospital-- the other 18 year old later recovered.
