Pilot and his wife are found dead by their four children

  • Police found drug paraphernalia inside their Centerville, Ohio, home
  • Since January, Montgomery County has had 165 accidental drug overdoses 

A pilot and his wife have died of an apparent drug overdose, authorities said.

The bodies of Brian J Halye, 36, and 34-year-old Courtney A Halye were found by their children Thursday morning in Centerville, Ohio, about 50 miles north of Cincinnati.

One of the four children living in the home, ages 13, 11, 10 and 9, found the couple unconscious on the floor of their upstairs bedroom and called police.

An unidentified 13-year-old boy told the dispatcher: 'My two parents, I just woke up, and my parents are on the floor. My sister said they are not waking up.' 

He said his parents had been fine the night before.

One of the three girls also called police and told to the dispatcher: 'My mom's on the floor and my stepdad ... they're not waking up ... we just woke up for school.' 

Brian Halye was a pilot for Spirit Airlines, which told the Dayton Daily News that Halye last flew March 10.

The preliminary cause of death appears to be an accidental overdose of fentanyl, an opiate many times more powerful than heroin, said Montgomery County Coroner's Office Director Ken Betz. 

A final determination on the cause and manner of the couple's death will take six weeks until toxicology reports are completed, Betz added. 

Drug paraphernalia was found inside the home, Centerville police said.

Courtney Halye was convicted of a drug possession charge that was later expunged in 2010, the Dayton Daily News reports.

Halye's mother, Nancy Casey, told NBC News, that her daughter was a Type 1 diabetic, being treated for depression and had been prescribed medication.

But Casey, 51, does not believe the Halyes were dependent on drugs.

Casey said she had a "dreadful feeling" after she spoke with her daughter earlier that day.

'Something was off with her and something was off with him,' she said.  

Casey described her daughter as being well-liked and "a light in the room". 

'I don't know if they decided they were going to party or went and they got a hold of this bad stuff going around town,' Casey said.

Courtney Halye's former husband and father of her two children, Jacob Castor, died in August 2007 at age 27 from an accidental overdose, according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.

Since January, Montgomery County has had 165 accidental drug overdoses, with heroin, fentanyl and carfentanil being the current fatal mix of drugs most seen by Betz.   

Brian and Courtney Halye each had two children from previous relationships, Centerville police said.

Brian Halye's two daughters were picked up by their mother from the scene Thursday morning, police said.

Warren County Court records show he was divorced in 2011 in a joint custody case.  

The Halyes purchased their home on East Von Dette Circle in Centerville during the summer of 2013.

The neighborhood, Pellbrook Farm, is a quiet suburban cul-de-sac, with homes valued around $150,000 to $225,000.

Those 4 children (God in heaven help them ) are going to have to live with this tragedy, and their barely just getting started. Very sad story, saddest take away is that current "users " usually keep using. Even t death do them part.
