UPTON, Maine — A recently married woman who was fatally shot in the head was found on property in a small, isolated town where her in-laws own a home and nearly 200 acres, officials said Tuesday.
Kelly Winslow’s body was found by state police detectives in Upton on Friday, the day after her husband, Patrick Dapolito, reported her missing from their home in Limington, about a two-hour drive away.
The death of Winslow, 30, has been ruled a homicide. Police have released few details.
Dapolito’s parents live in Upton, a town of about 65 people on the New Hampshire border, but have been in Florida, where they typically go in the winter, Town Clerk Jim Rector said.
Close to 200 acres of mostly wooded land is in the name of Dapolito’s father or a family realty trust, he said.
The word around town is that the body was found on Dapolito land, Rector said, but state police spokesman Stephen McCausland wouldn’t identify the precise location.
The case remains under investigation, with no new developments Tuesday, McCausland said.
Dapolito reported his wife missing from their home in Limington, about 80 miles from where her body was found the next day.
Winslow’s obituary, which was published in Lewiston’s Sun Journal newspaper on Tuesday, said she and Dapolito had married recently, and she was survived by a daughter.
After Winslow was reported missing, police searched the family’s Limington home and other locations before finding the body in Upton. Her husband was interviewed Friday and has been cooperative during the investigation, McCausland said.
No arrests had been made.
