Dynamic Module - Duplicate Entries - ContentLifecycleStatus.Live

I developed a custom module "Milestones" with data type "Milestones" and singular  type "Milestone". I'm then using an MVC widget to access the Milestones and display them in chronological order. 

The code I use to read the items from the database:

var dynamicModuleManager = DynamicModuleManager.GetManager();
var milestoneType =       TypeResolutionService.ResolveType("Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicTypes.Model.Milestones.Milestone");
var milestones = dynamicModuleManager.GetDataItems(milestoneType).Where(c => c.Status == ContentLifecycleStatus.Live);
var milestonesSorted = from milestone in milestones
                       orderby milestone.GetValue<decimal>("Year")
                       select milestone;

I then loop through each item in milestonesSorted, create an object instance, and add it to a list. That list has two items for each entry in the Milestones module. When I display the status on output in the view, both copies of each record show "Live". 

If I change the ContentLifecycleStatus.Live to ContentLifecycleStatus.Master, I still get duplicate records and the status on all shows "Master". 

If I comment out the "Where" clause entirely, I get two copies of Live and two copies of Master that are output in the view. 

In the Content>Milestones section of the Sitefinity backend, I see only the 6 separate items I created. In SQL Server Management studio for the dbo.milestone table, I see 12 entries, and for the dbo.milestone_sf_content_link, I also see 12 entries. 

I understand that there should be twice as many rows in the table as there are in viewable in the backend because one is stored as Master and one as Live; However, I don't understand why I seem to output twice again that many with duplicates of both Master and Live.

I have tried unpublishing individual items, which makes no change in their visibility. Deleting items removes them, but once they're re-added, the duplicate problem is unchanged.

Have you tried

c.Status == ContentLifecycleStatus.Live && c.Visible == true

Hi Steve,

I added that condition into the where clause and it had no effect on the result.

So I decided to delete the Module and try again. I recreated it and that seemed to take care of the problem. Perhaps there was some issue with my database or something... Anyway, it's fixed now.
