Two former Navy SEALs were found dead aboard a container ship in the Indian Ocean that was featured in the movie “Captain Phillips.”
The men, Jeffery Reynolds and Mark Kennedy, worked for the Trident Security Firm based in Virginia Beach, Va., and were part of a crew that arrived at the port Sunday, according to WAVY.
The movie “Captain Phillips" portrayed the story of when pirates hijacked the ship off the coast of Somalia in 2009.
A State Department spokeswoman said that an investigation had been opened into the incident.
