28 Feb Parents warn of fentanyl danger from fake pills after Rocklin teen’s heartbreaking death.
Zachary Didier, 17, was a straight “A” student with what seemed like a limitless future. He was a standout athlete in soccer and track, and a talented self-taught musician. The Whitney High School senior was set to graduate in June with honors and had his sights on Stanford or UCLA. On Dec. 27, during winter break, Zach’s dad found him slumped over his desk with his head resting in his arm. He wasn’t breathing and CPR had no effect. What was first an inexplicable tragedy has since become a cautionary tale. Zach was a victim of fentanyl poisoning.
