YONKERS - A 19-year-old Cortlandt teen who was found unresponsive at his home has died of an apparent heroin overdose.

Tyler Seger died at Hudson Valley Hospital Wednesday after his body was discovered. Seger is one of three suspected heroin overdose victims found in Westchester this week.

A neighbor who knew Seger said he was a nice kid.
