Posted: Tuesday, June 30, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Police say there was no foul play in the deaths of five men whose bodies were found in outdoor locations in Anchorage this spring.

Police continue to wait for test results on another two men also found outside.

Officials on Monday said three of the five men died accidentally. One was a suicide, and the other a natural death. Police say alcohol played a role in four of those deaths.

The five men were Stanley Ivey, Wesley Small, Joseph Ferreira, Danny Wright and Simeon Boots. Police are not saying which cause of death killed each man out of respect for the families.

Officials say the men were either homeless or familiar with life on the street.
