2 Americans found dead on ship portrayed in ‘Captain Phillips’

Two security officers were found dead Tuesday on the Maersk Alabama container ship, the same vessel portrayed in the Oscar-nominated film, ‘Captain Phillips.’

The security guards, both Americans, aged 44, were found in a ship cabin by a colleague who wanted to check on one of the two men. The ship was moored in the Seychelles.

A police investigation is ongoing.
