Takara Bain, a communications officer with the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force, said investigators had ruled out foul play but are still working to determine how the deaths occurred.

The small boat appears to have arrived from outside the Caribbean, according to Police Commissioner Trevor Botting.

Botting added that authorities do not believe the boat’s destination was the Turks and Caicos.

“My investigators are working to establish their identities and how they met their death,” Botting said.
