Police investigate deaths of two men found in Fairview apartment

Posted: Thursday, February 21, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- One of the two men found dead in a Fairview apartment building Tuesday night apparently died from natural causes, Anchorage Police said.

Police are not certain what caused the death of the other man, Larry G. DeWill, 46, but evidence suggests it may have been a drug overdose or a suicide, police spokesman Ron McGee said. Police did not find a suicide note at the scene.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death, McGee said. Police had not released the name of the other man because next of kin had not been notified.

The men were last seen Friday by a friend. The manager of Vista Grande apartment building called police about 8:15 p.m. Tuesday to report two bodies had been found after a friend and neighbor checked on the men.

DeWill was lying on the bed and the other man was found sitting next to the bed. The men had been dead for a couple of days.
