Police: Man found dead at Newton-John’s Fla. home

 

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a man has been found dead from a gunshot wound inside a South Florida home owned by singer Olivia Newton-John and her husband.

Jupiter police Sgt. Scott Pascarella said Monday that the victim is a 42-year-old man who didn’t live there and wasn’t related to the residents. Pascarella says the victim had permission to be at the home but wasn’t staying there.

Initial media reports listed the death as a suicide, but Pascarella said it’s classified as a death investigation. He didn’t say whether foul play was involved.

The Palm Beach Post (http://tinyurl.com/m8nr9mp) reports construction was being done on the home.

No other details were released. Calls to the singer’s agent and manager weren’t immediately returned.

The singer’s hits include “You’re The One That I Want,” with John Travolta from the 1978 movie “Grease.”
