Two former Navy Seals found dead aboard the Maersk Alabama, the ship hijacked in the Tom Hanks' film Captain Phillips, are believed to have died of drug overdoses. Mark Daniel Kennedy, 43, and Jeffrey Keith Reynolds, 44, were found dead on Tuesday in a cabin with drugs and hypodermic needles as the ship berthed in the Seychelles.

So did Marilyn Monroe
some times the quality of the smack is better than other times
I’m waiting for,”The rest of the story”. Guarantee its different than this.
Vince Foster presented a more credible murder scene, I’d say.
Just to be picky....SEAL is capitalized always.....
I agree with you. This isn’t the end of this story. It just doesn’t fit. Former Seals both die at same time from “drug overdose”? It just doesn’t make sense.
A danger to their country no doubt.
Need to look for ligature marks.
I’m calling BS on this.
very suspicious at the least ,, not something you’d expect from a seal ... on a ship surrounded by supposedly friendlies it would be very easy to subdue a pair with drugs (food/drink) or pump a gas into their cabin and then create any scenario you want afterwards. I want to know if either of these two was the one who “dissed” Dear Leader by taking the shot or if they had any connections to team 6.
IF they were druggies and both using from the same source it could have resulted in both dying from overdose.
IF we believe that SEALS turn into druggies. More likely they were given something in their food and then the needles were planted.
Journalists are depraved idiots for the most part.
I’d want to know what their previous assignments were and if they and ever acted as sources for a previous or immenent news story.
BOTH at the same time...?
Scene was configured to maximize embarrassment — someone powerful wants some important questions to GO AWAY.
Probably another instance of the Fentanyl laced Heroine?
Yeah I highly doubt this honorable SEAL is a doper.
Heroin is sometimes cut with other thing which reduce its potency. If you start injecting yourselves to that potency when you get the pure stuff its bye bye. Sometimes strychnine is used in heroin and relying on drug dealers to get the proportions right is a risky proposition.
yeah I ain’t buying that the exSEALS are dopers, see
Prove these SEALS were dopers
Yeh because we all know how Navy SEALs love Heroin. sarc.
“Im waiting for,The rest of the story. Guarantee its different than this.”
That’s my current thinking also. I’ll hold any judgement until a complete and legitimate autopsy is done.
PLEASURE SEEKERS get through Hell Week at BUDS...???!
Truck load of salt required....
Could be the deadly heroin-fentanyl mixture the media is talking about, or some other adulterated product.
Whatever small scale conspiracy theories pop up about this it's only a matter of time before somebody accuses the government or other dark forces of creating the deadly mix.
The timing is strange. But, to know that presumably honorable, decent, and, otherwise upstanding people died from drug related reasons? Not so much.
There are more drugs around each and everyone of us than we care to know. There are more people we encounter in everyday life using something than we care to know. It’s not always the stoner looking guy begging at the intersection that I’m talking about either.
soebarkha op until demonstrated otherwise.
Based on what an overdose is...they could have been sampling from the same batch. Easy enough to explain.
Wow, that guy is not a herion addict.
This guy is confident and healthy .
He was bumped off.
I don’t believe it. Something struck me as suspicious when I first heard their bodies were found on that ship.
Yeah....sounds like when a guy was pulled from the river with 500 lbs of chains wrapped around him.....
Sheriff said he tried to steal more chains than he could swim with......
I knew one that died of drugs and alcohol. He had alcoholic patents which predestined him. He did fine while serving. He started downhill after he got out, I think the chemicals took the place of the adrenalin high. Damn shame- he was a very talented person.
Knockout drops in their coffee, then needles in their arms?
The security firm they worked for, Trident, according to the article said “The company said it would implement a random drug testing programme.”
So they didn’t have a drug testing program. They may have had a pre hire test but that’s it.
Who do you believe would come to work for a security company without a random drug test?
Another technique is to drug their drinks, and then when they are incapacitated, give them the hot shot.
Either way, I’m not expecting a really thorough autopsy and medical examination.
Knockout drops in their coffee, then needles in their arms?
How often do TWO real drugies both OD at the same time? I suspect that when the first to shoot up croaks, the second wouldn’t push the plunger.
IF we believe that SEALS turn into druggies.
Yeah, I’m suspicious....that’s hard to believe.
This happened in the Seychelles. A CSI style investigation is highly unlikely. No more information to come forward and the ship has most likely sailed.
Even though we may not like to admit it, there is no reason why an ex-SEAL couldn't be an addict. There are many explanations as to why two ex-SEALS of similar age would "OD" together.
Did these guys have a history of drug abuse? That should be fairly easy for a trained investigator to check out.
All candidates will be required to pass a Medical Screening & Criminal Background check.
“Founded by U.S. Navy Special Operations Personnel (SEALs) and Senior U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Officers, The Trident Group was established in April 2000 to fill an observed gap in security consulting, training, technology development and implementation of manpower to the global maritime community.”
I don't know how long they were with this group, but they were only aboard the ship about three weeks before their deaths. If they were new employees they would have passed their pre-hire drug test recently.
‘According to Kevin Speers of Maersk, both Reynolds and Kennedy came onboard the ship on January 29. Their deaths were, according to Speers, “not related to vessel operations or their duties as security personnel.”’
I'm suspicious. Someone may be targeting SEALS.
