Sheriff: No signs of foul play in deaths of missing men

EUFAULA, Okla. (AP) _ An Oklahoma sheriff says the deaths of two men missing from a music festival are not suspicious.

Okmulgee County Sheriff Eddy Rice told the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1MkYYF4 ) Monday that there were no signs of foul play in the deaths of 20-year-olds Benjamin Baber and Cody Parrick.

Their bodies were found Sunday night in Baber's minivan, which was submerged in the flood-swollen Lake Eufaula (yoo-FAW'-luh). Family members said the men had been best friends since they were in a pre-kindergarten class together.

The men had been missing after the Rocklahoma festival for 16 days before receding water levels revealed the top of the van.

It's unclear how the vehicle ended up in the lake, but Rice said Baber was a very inexperienced driver.
