The Associated Press

BOOTHBAY HARBOR, Maine — State police have identified three bodies found inside two houses in the coastal Maine town of Boothbay Harbor as that of a married couple and their 40-year-old son.

A spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety says the bodies of 71-year-old Svend Jorgensen and his 75-year-old wife, Carol Jorgensen, were found in their home on Lakeside Drive. The body of their son, Eric Jorgensen, was found at his Montgomery Road home.

Spokesman Stephen McCausland said investigators are working to determine the cause and manner of their deaths but that no one else is thought to have been involved. He said autopsies were underway Sunday and would continue Monday.

He said the bodies were discovered Saturday after someone called police requesting that they check on one of the properties.
