    2 former Navy SEALs found dead aboard ship at center of ‘Captain Phillips’ saga

    Details of the contractors' deaths remain unclear, but they were not on watch and did not die while performing a security operation, Tom Rothrauff, the president of the Trident Group, said. He said an initial assessment of the scene did not suggest any foul play.

    A spokesman from the shipping line only confirmed that two people had been found dead, citing the ongoing investigation. The U.S. Coast Guard is investigating the matter.[

    That was the first thing I thought of also, but to claim drugs. Then both of them took enough to kill themselves. Hopefully their families will insist on independent autopsies. jmo

    IDK. Anything's possible. There's a deadly batch of heroin circulating recently.

    I have glanced at this topic. IMHO it worth a look.
    There is a buzz on the internet. Thanks Fran.

    I think we need to learn more, before we state these guys as taking heroin.

    Something doesn't pass the smell test.

    JMHO

    Agree. Seems the information about drugs and paraphernalia would have been released in the original report that these men were found dead. Very stinky!

    Well, you would have to wait for the autopsies. It would not surprise me though, I doubt there is much for security personnel to do on those ships, they may just have been alleviating the boredom.

    This is not the first time security has been found dead on a ship. I can't remember when or who bur I did see a documentary where the family was wanting answers. It was in a foreign port.

    This whole story is suspicious on so many levels, with the biggest being the heroin angle.

    IMO (coming from a 40 something military brat, raised overseas, dad worked in NATO, turned military wife - twice, now military mom), this story line stinks! SEALS are the elite of ALL military recon, in all four branches. They are held to strict psychological and physical standards and are continually monitored and evaluated.

    I don't believe, for a second, drug use would go undetected. While, they were no longer under military duty and inspection/intervention, they weren't young chickens. They were in their 40s. After a lifetime (20 yrs) of strict physical routine and obedience, they turn to drugs? Plus, who goes straight to the hard-core stuff? They certainly look healthy and fit in the media photos.

    Plus, what are the odds of not one, but TWO SEALS falling to the same fate? They both went from a humble and noble career to heroin overdose? Really?

    Apparently they we doing the town pretty heavy the night before and were seen hanging out with some of the local "working girls". The Seychelles apparently have a heroin problem. There is no evidence that they were junkies or had been involved with this kind of thing before. It is not inconceivable that they were offered a "forbidden fruit" they had never tried and decided to give it a go. These things happen.

    Don't security personnel have to periodically do drug testing in order to keep their jobs? From what I've read they went from no drug history to death. Perplexing jmo
