Police ID men found dead outside vacant building

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Two men found dead in a covered area outside a vacant building Thursday likely died from "illegal activity" but not foul play, police said. Police don't think there is a danger to the public.

Police identified the dead men as Stephen Andrew Smith, 24, of Springfield and Timothy Lowe Fleming, 53, of Vida.

A passerby spotted the bodies around noon and thought they were unconscious.

Police said the building is a known camping site for transients.

The medical examiner was expected to look at the bodies Friday.
