MINNEHAHA COUNTY, S.D. (KELO) — The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office says two men were found dead in a pasture near Buffalo Ridge Thursday.

Phillips says the men have been identified as 45-year-old Jason Lucas of South Dakota and 46-year-old Jason Blunt of Iowa.

“We believe these two individuals got into an altercation and both succumb to their injuries at the scene,” Phillips said.

Authorities believe the men were past acquaintances. The camper belonged to one of the men who was staying there for work nearby. Phillips says they were construction workers.

Authorities don’t believe any drugs were involved, but that and a lot of other questions should be answered in the coming days.

“That’s what we are working on, that’s where the autopsy will help us, that’s where the forensics of the cell phones will help us, that’s where the public will help us,” Phillips said.

The sheriff’s office is waiting on more information from the coroner, but investigators

Captain Phillips says the bodies of the two men could have been there for a day or two.

That’s why someone called authorities Thursday to check on the two men because they hadn’t been seen or heard from.

Authorities ask anyone with information about the two men to call the sheriff’s office at 605-367-4300 or CrimeStoppers at 605-367-7007.
