Suspecting abuse-resistant Oxycontin, buyer kills dealer

In a drug deal gone bad in Boston, the buyer concluded that his source was selling the newer Oxycontin, reformulated to prevent abuse. It wouldn't burn, so it couldn't be smoked. Police suspect that the test failure cost the drug dealer his life. They also suspect that pills were not the reformulated Oxycontin, but rather a fake or a different drug. Article
