Howard County Police are investigating two overdose deaths at the fair on Tuesday. 

Police were called just before noon by an employee who found two people locked inside a bunkhouse on the fairgrounds. Firefighters were able to get inside and found two men, one in their 30's and one in their 40's, dead. 

Investigators say there was evidence of drug use at the fair and at this point, there is no indication of foul play. 

Both men were from out of state and police have not released their names or their employer at this time.
