Belleville, IL (KSDK) - Two men from the Metro East were found dead Sunday night in a Belleville residence and police suspect drug use played a role in their deaths.
According to Detective Mark Heffernan, a Belleville Police Department spokesman, officers were dispatched to the 1700 block of Laurette Drive just before 7:50 a.m. on June 10. Officers and EMTs discovered the bodies of two men inside the home, identified as Mika Moore and Christopher Bailey.
Detectives searched the house and discovered drug paraphernalia, as well as signs of intravenous drug use. They found no signs of trauma to either Moore or Bailey's bodies and do not suspect foul play.
Detectives are awaiting toxicology reports to confirm the causes of death, Heffernan said. There was no sign of criminal activity in the home other than the suspected drug use.
