New Bedford Police say two New Bedford men are dead after apparent heroin overdoses over the weekend.

Detective Captain Steven Vicente tells WBSM News a 57-year-old man that was found dead on a fishing boat was discovered with a syringe near his body. He was found dead by his nephew on the vessel Dinah Jane, owned by Carlos Rafael.

A 34-year-old man was also found dead at about 10am Saturday inside a Myrtle Street home. Vicente says the cause of death also appears to be a heroin overdose.

Vicente says as far as he knows, neither man had received treatments of Narcan before their deaths.

So far this year, six New Bedford residents have died as a result of heroin overdoses.
