Two Turkish women have been found dead in Lake Powell in the U.S. state of Utah, according to Utah-based news site

The 21-year-old women, who were identified as Betül Eryıldırım and Merve Tokel, had been working at a concession stand at a marina on Lake Powell for the summer.

Tokel’s floating body was first discovered on Aug. 8 by a boater; divers subsequently discovered Eryıldırım’s body yesterday evening.

The women had told friends that they were going to the beach for a few hours on Aug. 8.

"At this point, no foul play is expected," a local sheriff said. "But investigators are treating the incident as a homicide until it can be ruled out."
