Kids Find Their Parents Lying On The Floor, Then They See What's On Dad's Face

When you step aboard a plane, you are implicitly putting your life in the hands of the pilot. Horrifically, it appears that one pilot for Spirit Airlines had a dark, dangerous and fatal habit. Brian Halye, a 36-year-old pilot for Spirit Airlines and his 34-year-old wife, Courtney, were found by their children unmoving and not breathing.

The children’s tragic 911 call sheds some light on what was happening as Brian and Courtney’s son informed the 911 operator that his parents are “very cold” and were not breathing, saying that his sister said his father was "pale and there was black lines all over his face."

When Centerville police and emergency services arrived at the house in Centerville, Ohio, Brian and Courtney were pronounced dead at the scene. While no foul play was initially suspected, police became highly suspicious when they found a range of narcotics equipment in the house. When toxicology reports came back from the coroner’s office, the initial reports indicated that the death of Brian and Courtney were consistent with an overdose of heroin or fentanyl.

Courtney’s mother, Nancy Casey, has been rocked by the death of her daughter and son in law, who she had talked to only hours before their fatal overdose, saying that "I had this dreadful feeling all day.

Something was off with her and something was off with him." Ms. Casey also revealed that her daughter had been diagnosed with depression and suffered from Type 1 diabetes.

Spirit Airlines released a statement after Brian’s death became public, saying: "Captain Halye served at the airline for just over nine years.” The airline also informed police that the pilot had never failed any random drug tests. The incident is indicative of an increase in drug abuse across America, particularly concerning is the high numbers of heroin users. Brian’s job as an airplane pilot and his usage of heroin just shows that anyone can fall afoul of the addictive drug.
