The body of a 42-year-old man, who apparently died of self-inflicted gunshot wound, is found in Olivia's house at the Jupiter Inlet Colony, Florida.
A dead body has been found in the house of Grammy-winning singer Olivia Newton-John at the Jupiter Inlet Colony, Florida. According to Palm Beach Post, the police went to the house on Monday, August 19, after receiving report of the body discovery.
The Jupiter Police Department said that the man, who died of a gunshot wound, was employed as a contractor for the residents. Police's spokesman Sgt. Scott Pascarella added that the man did not live in the house. Both Olivia and her husband John Easterling were away during the incident.
Although the man apparently committed suicide, the authorities are going to carry out an autopsy to the body. "I know that there's a lot going out right now that it was a suicide. We haven't confirmed that to any media outlets though," Sergeant Pascarella said.
Investigation on the case is currently pending as the authorities are waiting for the results of the autopsy, which will be conducted on Tuesday, August 20. The man's name as well as the cause of death will be released when they are available. "There's nothing suspicious at this point," Sergeant Pascarella said of the case.
Olivia rose to fame when she was paired with John Travolta in 1978 box-office hit "Grease". The film's soundtrack "You Are the One That I Want" was one of the best-selling singles of all time.
