(NECN) -  Mass. State Police tell us that since Nov. 1 of 2013, at least 185 people have died of heroin overdoses.
     
That number does not include the state's three largest cities, Boston, Worcester and Springfield, because state police do not lead death investigations in those cities.
     
State police say there are large concentrations of heroin deaths in Southeastern Mass., the Merrimack Valley and Western Mass.
