2 Maine men found dead in motel sewage tank

Two men who worked for a pump-repair company have been found dead in a sewage tank at a Maine motel.

Kennebunkport Police Chief Craig Sanford says 58-year-old Winfield Studley, of Windsor, and 70-year-old Richard Kemp, of Monmouth, were found floating in the tank shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The men were employees of Stevens Electric & Pump Service, which was doing work at the motel, The Lodge at Turbat's Creek.

Sanford says the bodies have been taken to the medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.
