Police ID men found dead inside Union Twp. home

UNION TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Police have identified two men who were found dead inside a Union Township home.

Union Township Police say Michael Lewis, 48, of Lawrenceburg, Ky. and Kenneth Lewis, 36, of Georgetown, Ky. were found around 12:30 p.m. Sunday in a home in the 3900 block of Hopper Hill Road. Police say they were brothers.

Police say the think the deaths were accidental. An exact cause of death will be released after autopsies are performed.

"They said they were doing work on the property, that was foreclosed," says neighbor Mike Lewis, who told FOX19 he ran into several people on the property earlier in the week.

Lewis and other neighbors say that for a long time, the house had been vacant.

"I saw they had an air compressor in the garage, and then my wife saw pieces of drywall. It looked like they were working with drywall and then upstairs we've noticed now we can see through from the front window to the back window," said neighbor Ted Williams.

Police have also not said how the two people died, and say the case is under investigation.
