LAWRENCE - Police in Lawrence say two men found dead last week in an area known as a homeless camp probably overdosed on drugs.

Officers found the bodies Friday in a tent near the city's Amtrak station on 7th Street, a few blocks east of Massachusetts.

The men are identified as 18-year-old Bronson Lee Standlee of Oklahoma and 29-year-old Cory O'Connor of Indiana.

Their hometowns weren't available Monday.

Officials say autopsy results weren't conclusive and toxicology reports are pending, but initial indications are that drugs were the cause of death.
