CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Massachusetts police say a medical technician accused of causing a hepatitis C outbreak in New Hampshire was found intoxicated in a hotel room along with a suicide note the week before his arrest.

Federal authorities previously indicated that David Kwiatkowski might have tried to harm himself in the days before his arrest July 19. A police report in Marlborough, Mass., includes new details, including a list of six prescription drugs that were found in his hotel room.
