SOUTH LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -

Two men were found dead in a hotel in South Lebanon Monday evening.

Police say they got the call at around 4:00 p.m.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office identified the men as Samuel Giles, 22, and Larry Nichols, 37. They say Giles and Nichols were discovered by a family member of one of the deceased.  

Officials say foul play is not suspected in either death.

"I've never seen anything like this happen here before," said Chris Patterson.

Police responded to the Countryside Inn Motel off of Dry Run Road in South Lebanon for a welfare check. Chris Patterson lives right across the street and says he noticed a woman trying to get into the room earlier this afternoon.

"She went over there, knocking on windows and stuff and couldn't get an answer and I guess she went to the office and they opened the door for her and she went in there and there was her son, I think it was her son and one of his friends," said Chris Patterson.

"One was found in the main living quarters and the other was found in the bathroom," said Lt. Eric Johnson.

Lieutenant Eric Johnson with the Warren County Sheriff's Office says at this point they can't tell if it was a homicide, suicide, or some sort of drug overdose. But the crime scene, and a coroner's report will help them determine a cause of death for both men.

"Of course we look for obvious signs of trauma to the body. Sometimes we can see that right away, sometimes that takes an autopsy to see. But obviously we're looking to see if there's a gun, a knife, bullet wounds, if there's stab wounds," said Lt. Johnson.

"There was no gunfire or anything like that and they were both younger fellas," said Patterson.

Patterson says whatever the cause of death, it's never easy seeing this happen to anyone, especially in your neighborhood.

"If I found one of my children dead, it'd be awful. And she collapsed out in the parking lot too and they took her out in an ambulance too so yeah that'd be very devastating to me to lose one of my children," said Patterson.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office says Giles and Nichols were taken to Miami Valley Regional Crime Lab for autopsies.
