Deaths of Elderly Couple in Aroostook County Ruled Murder-Suicide
State Police are investigating the deaths of a husband and wife in the Aroostook County town of Chapman.
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman, Steve McCausland, says police received a 911 call around 11:20am Thursday.
McCausland says when emergency crews got to the house on Chapman Road they found Marcus Sykora, 81, dead in the basement, and his wife Sheila Sykora, 77, was seriously injured. Sheila was taken to a hospital where she died.
Detectives say they do not suspect anyone outside the home is involved in the deaths.
More information is expected to be released on Friday after the medical examiner performs autopsies on the bodies.
