One of the two Ashland men who died less than 24 hours apart of a suspected heroin overdose is the son of SNL actor Michael Mckean.

Colin Mckean son to Actor Michael Mckean and mother Susan Russell is said to have died from what appeared to be a heroin overdose. Colin was an actor who helped produce and starred in films such as "a mighty wind", "the kiss", "Temptation." "Vampire Clan" and "Spinal Tap"

Michael McKean and his wife, Annette O'Toole, own the property on Laurel Street where he was found by a family member.

Another man also died less than 24 hours apart from what appeared to be another heroin overdose. Police aren't sure if the two got a bad batch or if it's only coincidence.
