A mixture of heroin and alcohol caused the deaths of two former U.S. Navy SEALS, including one from Fallbrook, it was reported today.
The results of toxicology tests in the Feb. 18 deaths of Jeffrey Reynolds of Fallbrook and Louisiana resident Mark Kennedy, both 44, were released Tuesday by the Seychelles Police Force, according to U-T San Diego. The men died in Port Victoria, Seychelles, a nation of islands in the Indian Ocean off Africa.
At the time of their deaths, the men were working as security officers on the Norfolk, Va.-based cargo ship, Maersk Alabama. They were found in a cabin aboard the ship, which was famously hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009.
The police statement said foul play has been ruled out.
Reynolds enlisted in the Navy in 1990 and was discharged 10 years later, U-T San Diego reported.
