LANCASTER COUNTY—A Lancaster County man and his two sons were found dead in a Maryland manure pit early this morning. Glen Nolt, 48, and his two sons, Kelvin, 18, and Cleason, 14, of Peach Bottom, PA were identified as the victims. Autopsies will be performed on all three of them to determine the cause of death.
Around 8 p.m. last night police responded to a 911 call from the dairy farmer where the three men worked. The owner of the farm reported that the three workers were missing and had not been seen since 2 p.m. yesterday afternoon. Family members noticed that the workers did not return home from work that evening and drove to the dairy farm in Kent County, Maryland.
The body of the father was found in the manure pit around 1:15 a.m. this morning. Rescuers found the other two victims, one around 4 a.m. and the other around 5:45 a.m.
Investigators are still trying to determine how the victims ended up in the pit and have interviewed other workers on the farm, but there are no witnesses to the accident. Police say that there is no evidence of foul play.
The investigation is continuing.
