DAYTON -- A crime alert: Bad guys are using new drugs for sexual assaults, and you may be shocked to hear what they're using and how easy it is to get.
It's a national statistic, 75 percent of sexual assaults involve some sort of substance, but that substance is changing.
"We don't see that much GHB in the kind of typical that you hear about date rape drugs," Dr. Kent Harshbarger, Montgomery County Coroner.
It turns out, the Miami Valley crime lab is seeing drugs that are commonly found in your bathroom, such as Benadryl, Visine and many more.
"Vicodin, xanax benzo class are more of what we see when we get samples for a date-rape investigation," said Dr. Harshbarger.
The question is, why these drugs?
"It's the sedating effect and by combining them can develop rapid symptoms," said Harshbarger. "So people aren't aware that it's happening until they're either intoxicated or unable to control themselves."
"Any time you deal with sexual violence you feel violated," said Sandy Hunt, director for Montgomery County Victim's Advocate.
Hunt works with victim's of sexual assault.
She's seen the pattern of changing date rape drugs for years.
"Most drugs are odorless and colorless and you may not even recognize that someone's put something in your drink," said Hunt.
That makes it even scarier for women who have been raped.
"They feel not only sexually violated but their trust has been violated and that takes a long time to heal from," said Hunt.
But the crime lab doesn't see the abuse of everyday drugs being used to violated women stopping anytime soon.
"Availability is one of the issues, just like we're seeing in the heroin epidemic what's being used on the street is what we're seeing being used," said Dr. Harshbarger.
The Miami Valley Crime Lab is one of just a few that tests for prescription drugs or over-the-counter drugs in a victim's system.
