According to WGME 13, the bodies that were discovered during a wellness check in New Sharon on Monday, have been ruled the victims of a murder/suicide.

Authorities say that 55-year-old Robert Dapolito shot and killed his 42-year-old wife, Jessica Dapolito, before then taking his own life.

In a weird twist, authorities said that about 10 years ago, Robert Dapolito's relative Patrick Dapolito, also shot and killed his wife, too.

According to WABI TV 5, two people were found dead on Monday by the Maine State Police as they entered a New Sharon home during a wellness check. Authorities say that the deceased were both adults.

Though two bodies were found, the wellness check was originally supposed to be for just one person. Both bodies were discovered 'at a New Sharon residence' on Harvey Road according to reports.

Possible identities, genders and other information was withheld and not immediately available to the public. Both bodies will be examined in search of clues and possible cause of death on Tuesday.
